Ever since I set up a smart playlist in iTunes to present  a short list of songs from my collection to be used on my iPhone based on the length of time the song was last played and whether or not the song had been skipped within a set length of time, ITunes has not updated the "Last Played" or "Last Skipped" date after my iPhone has synced with iTunes. This happens with many, but not all of the songs in the playlist. I have been unable to determine any criteria that causes some songs' metadata to update and others' to not. This has been going on through two generations of iPhones and many genereations of iTunes software.  While I have found threads that are similar to my situation, none of the apparent solutions have worked for me.  Any help would be appreciated.


I have an iPhone 5 and am running IOS 6.1.4
