Hi.
I was planning to get a new iPod classic just for the Genius Mixes (and the capacity too a bit).
(I bought the 120GB for Genius last year and am very happy with that purchase)

But Genius Mixes are not in the classic specifications page.

Has anyone with a brand new classic had the chance to try Genius Mixes on it?

If if is not there, then there is no Apple portable device where I can sync all my Genius Mixes (my iPhone is crying for 10 more GB when I try to sync the Genius Mixes).

Thanks in advance and have a nice day,

Jérôme.

    According to this page, Genius is included on the new 160GB iPod classic.

    Sorry, that link says genius playlists not "mixes".

    Yeah sorry about that.

    I need to get used to the difference between "playlists" and "mixes".

    I have a 120GB iPod classic and it does not support Genius Mixes. I hope that changes in the future because I think that would be a great additional feature!

    I have the new iPod Classic 160Gb, and the Genius Mixes don't work on it
    I can see my Mixes on iTunes, but it's not possible to sync them on the iPod Classic.

    I really hope that Apple will upgrade this feature!

    Oliviero is correct, I believe.

    I have iTunes 9, just got the new 160 Classic, and Mixes don't seem to appear anywhere on the device. Nor does there seem to be any mention of them in the manual.

    Note that the Genius Mixes don't just show up automatically even if you auto-sync. On my Touch I had to select one or more Genius Mixes on the "Music" tab in iTunes where you choose your sync options.

    Maybe the Classic doesn't give you this option, but my point is that you have to choose to load them on the sync preferences page.

    By the looks of it, Genius Mixes will on work on devices supporting the new iPhone OS 3.1 which I believe includes the iPhone, Touch and new Nano.

    Classics and other older style iPODs are on iPOD OS 2.0.1 which doesn't support it.

    Even if you manually select the option to manage music and playlists, the genius mixes do not show up.

    I have both iPhone and iPOD classic - the classic is for the car and when I read about Genius Mixes, I was really looking forward to it in the car - but no go. Apple need to standardise the features across the range.

    Thanks for the link! I really wish they put Genius Mixes in the Classic!

    Oh, btw, I noticed they do not have the 120GB model and the 2.0.1 software version on the drop down menus below the comments section...
