The new Genius playlists appear to work too. Listening to one now via
The key though would be able to actually create a Genius playlist from the Roku...that would be a fantastic feature.
Yes! I agree! It would be great to have an option to create a Genius List based on the currently selected song.
I love the new Genius playlists in iTunes 8. I've got a large music collection, and I find the Roku a bit clunky to scroll through a long list to find something "random" to play. I created a few sample Genius playlists by picking a random 80's song, a 90's song, a Children's song, etc... and I was was surprised at how well it picked complementary songs.
The Genius playlists do seem to pick too many "Greatest Hits" from the music I have - but I guess this is a function of what people are actually buying on the iTunes store? It's kind of cool - the playlists sort of sound like a Sirius music channel.
