Ok, I need a bit of help. I'm going crazy with the playlists on my new Touch.

Here's the scenario:

- I create a 'dumb' playlist with content defined by another series of smart playlists (I do this by pasting into dumb list)
- I create a smart playlist in Itunes pulling from the dumb list the 100 songs that have been added most recently that are also unrated

At this point all looks as expected in ITunes in the library display and the playlist even looks correct on the expanded display of the Touch in the Device list.

The problem is that as soon as I disconnect the Touch and look at the playlist on the device, the tracks do not match at all. As a matter of fact the tracks shown in that last playlist should belong in a pool of oldest added tracks that are not rated. It's like it's reversing the logic on the device. I mean it's not even having a chance to have a live updating issue. Shouldn't the tracks before playing at all match what's shown in Itunes playlist???

Can anyone try to replicate on a Touch?
