    iPhone OS 3.1.2 does NOT solve this problem.

    Confirmed. 3.1.2 Doesn't fix it.

    +1, same for me. Very annoying, although turning off live updating has worked.

    Add me to the list. My husband has a 1G iPod Touch and relied on the Recently Added playlist for his podcasts. Now it's not working ever since I "upgraded" his iPod to 3.1. I even tried to revert back to 2.2.1, but it kept giving me a 1600 error. I sent a message to Hopefully they will give us an update that fixes this SOON!

    everyone please help out and do the only thing that will actually get Apple to notice & fix this problem...

    The latest version of iTunes, 9.0.2 which came out 29 October 2009, does not solve this problem.

    I had posted a question in the iPod Touch forum and someone gave me a solution to fixing the Recently Added list. He said to add another criteria for the smart playlist that says "Playlist is/is not" and then choose a playlist that doesn't involve anything you want in the Recently Added list. You could just use the Music playlist or maybe create an empty playlist. The Recently Added playlist my husband has is for Podcasts and this fixed his auto updating.

    This is NOT a problem with iTunes though. It is a problem with the version 3 software for the iPod Touch and iPhone. I know this because my Classic iPod works fine.

    WOW - this works, Diana - thanks! I created another criteria in my Recently Added playlist (Playlist - Is - Music) and now my Recently Added list syncs in the proper order to my 3GS 3.1.2 iPhone (even w/ Live Updating enabled - killer!). I think you're right about it being related to the device OS as iTunes 9.0.2 update exhibits same issue when syncing Recently Added smartlists to iPod Touch and iPhone devices w/out the extra "playlist" criteria entry.

    Unfortunately, a Me, too post Apple, please fix ASAP!!! (luckily for now, a couple of the fixes mentioned on Jere work for now…

    Your suggestion of going on the playlist "recently added" and edit it. Removed Liveupdate and change sort from random to "most recent added", it solved the problem.
  • tom_cazzo Level 1 (0 points)
    I checked again Live update on the playlist and it changes the sort order in the iphone. Odd behavior, definitely a bug.

    This is the first time I post on the apple forums. I just got off the phone with a support rep who fixed this issue for me. It's simple. You have to edit the smart playlist and add a rule that says "playlist IS music" how crazy is that?

    Come on Apple! Why did you have to tinker with this setting? uuuggghhh!!!

    I have sort of figured out how to sort them by date added, but song added 12/11/2009 will show before song added 12/23/2009 - however, it is still sorted by the date.

    Check "Match the following rule"
    "Date added is in the last # weeks"
    (Remove media kind is not Podcast)
    Check "Limit to # items selected by *most recently added*"
    Check "Match only checked items"
    Check "Live updating"

    Please note I have an iPod Touch, but it should work for iPhones.

    PS, am working on how to sort so song added 12/23/2009 shows before song added 12/11/2009

    Simply Add a new Rule:
    Playlist is Music

    You can actually check Live Update!!
