Looks like you need to add a time element to maybe a number of plays element to get the list to update. For example if you add something like Last Played is not in last 5 days. That should get the contents of the list rotating.

I've added a not played in last 4 weeks, it certainly forced the playlist to refresh so clearly a good start.
I assumed that by using 4 weeks it would be at least 4 weeks before tracks where eligable for inclusion again.
It synced a new set of singles to my iPhone and I've justed played the first track using iTunes on my iMac and once it had played it disappeared and was replaced with something else.
Fantastic, it is working!!
Thank you for your help

Hi, so this playlist worked as expected on my iMac but I did not expect the playlist to be active on my iPhone.
As I listen to the tracks downloaded to my iPhone they disappear from the playlist, thye are still on my iPhone but not in the playlist. It makes sense they drop from the playlist as they no longer meat the criteria and unlike on my iMac there are no additional tracks to replace them with.
Is there away to stop the downloaded playlist from being 'active', I had hoped to listen to the playlist on my iPhone repeatedly until I refreshed it from my iMac?
Thank you for any additional help.

You'll have to change the criteria of the Smart Playlist. For example, something like:
Date Added is within last 4 weeks
Playcount is less than 25
Play around with it until you get something you like.

So currently, it is
Grouping= Single of the Week
Last Played = Not in the last 4 weeks
I'm only adding 1 per week, ie the Single of the Week, so the Date Added will not help
I'm going to try the below, I think it will work and when I have no tracks left I will have to reset the Plays counter and hopefully it will start again. I think!!
Thank you for your help
