How are you supposed to SHUFFLE an Artist in the ATV app please?

If you open an Artist, there is INSTANT MIX, which I would intuitively think would shuffle the artist, but instead it creates a shuffle of all music in the music library.

Can Instant Mix be removed and placed elsewhere, but add a Shuffle option please.

I'm sure others will add to this more eloquently.

Thanks.

No, we cannot remove Instant Mix because that is a very valid operation.

 

The "Play" button should be offering you the option to shuffle but it isn't at the moment.

How is that a valid operation from Artist level?

The "Play" button should be offering you the option to shuffle but it isn't at the moment.


So a bug?

Well in pandora you can start a mix based on an artist, so ours is the same concept.

If we start comparing products, why not compare it to SubSonic? (or AirSonic, which I'm using for my music library instead of Emby....) When compared to that, Emby is really missing a lot of features...

I'm not sure how that is relevant to this discussion, but, yes, we are not done yet.  That is true.

Technically, a missing feature.

Instant mix is a pretty common feature in other software. It suffers from the lack of randomness that pervades all similar functionality but it’s an important feature in iTunes

Instant mix is an OK feature. I think Emby should stick to it.

 

Other issue is the lack of shuffle play both on album artist and genres: it seems a pretty much basic feature and it would really be useful.

 

I started another thread regarding this. Sorry.

I currently shuffle both artist and genre on the AndroidTV app.

This can be done by:

1) Open ATV app

2) Open Android app on your smartphone

3) Hit the cast icon on your smartphone and select the proper ATV to cast to.

4) On your smartphone app, navigate to the desired genre/artist and start a shuffle playing.

It will start the shuffled playing on your ATV.

You can also hit again the cast icon on the smartphone and "disconnect" the ATV: music won't stop and you can control the list (skip/rew) by using your phisical infrared remote control.
