This would be so great...

...if it actually works. I have a bunch of "underlistened" smart playlists that are supposed to update as you say, but thought it just didn't work on the until you synced back to iTunes.

Now let me see if I understand the hint. You're saying that for the playlist to update, i.e. drop the tracks that have just been played, then all I have to do is pause playback, go up to the top level of the menus, then go back and start playback again, and it will update every time? I will definitely check this out and post back...

I have another example which will be interesting to test. I have a 'five star' playlist for each of my genres, so that when I import something I know I like, I can just give everything five stars, then as I listen on the iPod, I can edit the ratings and have it update my Library on the next sync with iTunes. As soon as a track loses it's five-star rating, it falls off the smart playlist in iTunes. I'll have to test this to see if it makes the ones that I've dropped to four stars or lower fall off of that particular five-star list on the iPod!

Thanks for the hint, and here's hoping Apple can make this work on the fly in a future software update!
