I see that the Genius has returned on iPhone for iTunes Match users who have upgraded to iOS 5.1. - Great.

Genius Mixes aren't showing up on my iPhone though, despite being explicitly mentioned in the iOS 5.1 release notes. I've tried updating iTunes Match and iTunes Genius via iTunes 6 and re-syncing my iPhone, but Genius Mixes stubbornly refuse to join the party.

 

Anything else I can try?

iPhone 4S, iOS 5.0.1

    I'm wondering this too.  I've tried on 5.1 iPhone 4s, 5.1 iPad 1 and iTunes 10.6.  I have no idea how to get genius mixes working with iTunes match

    Same here on my iphone 4, my ipad 2 and the brand new ios 5.1. I can see genius lists, I can create genius list on my iphone (note on my ipad), but the genius mix is not visible. (same with my apple TV and the new OS).

    I have the same problem. In addition, my iPad does show the icon to generate a genius list, but when I want to use it, everytime I get a "There are not enough songs to create a genius list" error…

    Same issue here - I do have a large library in the cloud and am wondering it it's at all related to the problem.  (on my 4s)

    Same error here, but on iPhone 4S. Tried rebooting after update, no dice.

     

    Also, my library is only about 2K songs, so I don't think it's related to that.

    I can See Genius lists and Genius mixes on Apple tv 2 with latest Software. But it says there are no Genius mixes in my library. Its under music with iTunes Match activated.

    I also have this problem with a strange twist. On my old iPhone 3G also with iOS5.1, that is not set for Match, which I use as an iPod, also gives my the "Try Again..." message when I try to create a Genius playlist. In addition, it doesnt see all the Genius mixes I've made on my MBPro. However, the 4s reads all of them fine.  So I can make 'em on my computer, the cloud sends them to my iPhone 4S, but not to my 3G (as it's not Cloud enabled), but I can't create them on any of my phones.  Where's the fix?

    I'm not seeing Genius mixes on my iPad2 or iPhone 4s even after going to 5.01. I called Apple Support and as nice as the support person was there was no solution found.

    Same here. Nothing appears on my iPad and iPhone.

     

    And on my Apple TV which has been updated to 5.0, there is a menu option for Genius Mixes but it says "Genius Is Not Available. There are no Genius Mixes in your iTunes Library." If I use Home Sharing instead of iCloud, Genius Mixes work.

     

    Though if I use Home Sharing on my iPhone, Genius Mixes still won't appear.

     

    Even turning off Genius in iTunes on my Mac (which seems to be only possible now by fully turning off iTunes Match) and turning it back on, nothing.

     

    Must be a bug. Oh well, at least Genius playlists work.

    Same problems as everyone else is mentioning.

     

    I get the option to make a Genius playlist on my iPhone 4 iOS 5.1, but always get the error that there aren't enough songs to make one (my library is modest, over 6000 tracks). This option doesn't appear on my iPad 2 iOS 5.1.

     

    Most importantly to me though, Genius Mixes are missing from both devices. Been trying for days to get them working, but it's futile!
