autoplaylist help [#15142]

How do you get the advanced function to do this:

For example when creating an 80s upbeat playlist I set the "all function" and put:

genre: contains - pop;wave;pop-rock
genre: does not contain - soft;hard

Songs that are hard rock and soft rock still show up in the playlist.

Another example, I want a list that is hardrock;rock;metal but if I exclude soft and pop, songs with soft rock and pop rock still show up.

If anyone knows how do make this work please help. There must be a way. It works in Winamp and Itunes but I'd rather use Mediamonkey.

This is very important element for making autoplaylists work as I'm having this issue in most of them.

I see this too. When the condition is 'contains' then the string is parsed as multiple values and any of those values causes a match.
When the condition is 'does not contain' it seems to be ignored. Maybe there's a mismatch between handling single and multiple value strings.

You could work around this by separating your criteria. E.g.:
genre: contains - pop;wave;pop-rock
genre: does not contain - soft
genre: does not contain - hard
