Since I've purchased iTunes Match, I thought it would also be great to turn the service on my iPod Touch, which I use to work out with. Upon turning on the service, I knew all of my media would be deleted and redownloaded, which I was okay with. I knew this would also include my playlists.
However, since everything has been put back into place, I haven't been able to sync, wirelessly, my playlists to my iPod Touch. There isn't the option to wirelessly sync playlists, or even to sync playlists across devices... or at least this seems like it to me.
Am I missing something, or is this a "bug"/"feature"/something forgotten by Apple?
I should have updated this MONTHS ago, apologies for letting this linger. However I found the solution to this problem, was merely waiting for Apple to update iTunes Match (I think). Let me describe is fully:
The problem I was describing, was my inability to grab playlists from iTunes Match, after they've been synced, especially after having a device that did not previously have iTunes Match associated with it. The solution was to delete all of the music on that device, and then turn on iTunes Match. Then, all of your playlists will appear from iCloud and you can download specific playlists as you wish.
This, I've found, has been the only true resolution to this problem because when you assign a device to have it's music matched by iTunes Match, you cannot add music to your device. Which makes "sense" if all of your music is in iTunes Match.
So, when you don't see any of your playlists, either wipe all of the music from your iDevice (backup first however), and then turn in iTunes Match.
