So, I posted this on my Facebook and I thought I’d share it here too:
Create a Smart DJ playlist using the Zune software and make it a mix of local and marketplace music. Then sync that playlist to your Windows Phone.
Go to the Music+Video hub and hit the “Shuffle All” button. None of that synced Marketplace music is part of the now playing playlist. To get *that* music to play you have to play each individual Smart DJ playlist. Plus, that “synced” marketplace music has the streaming symbol next to it.
So: 1) Why isn’t sync’d marketplace music part of my shuffle all? 2) If that music is going to be streamed anyway then what’s the purpose of putting an actual DRM’d file on my device?
It’s things like this that make me just want to have my Smart DJ playlists pull locally since that will all be part of a complete shuffle…yet, that takes away from the ‘discovering new music’ aspect. And God forbid, you have a SmartDJ playlist that pulls ALL of its songs from the marketplace.
Sheesh, I tell you. That Zune HD is looking mighty nice again.
