If it works I will explain you the reason (if you are interested).

OK, I'm happy to see that it works better now.
I'll try to explain the reasons.

Please don't set this. just disable this setting for the moment.
The playlist works as input for Radio-DJ.
Only those songs you see in the playlist are used by Radio-DJ.
When you set it to 250 songs, the only thing Radio-DJ gets as input are just those 250 songs.
If you want to select just a subset, thats ok. Therefore I've chosen the playlists as input,
but you must have in mind that Radio-DJ will maybe behave strange, especially if the list is very short.

Radio-DJ reads the input playlist and sorts the songs according to their rating.
This setting further reduces the amount of available songs per rating.
From each rating 25% of the songs are removed.
That means that from those 250 songs you configured, only about 187 songs were used.
187 songs are too little for a randomizer like Radio-DJ to work properly.
I personally don't use this setting anymore.
I found out, that using the attribute "Last played x hours / days ago" from the auto playlist
does a much better job.
I have an auto playlist for each rating, where low ratings like 2 stars have a setting of about 1 week or more and higher ratings like 4 stars have a setting of a few hours. Then I merge those playlist in another playlist witch serves as my input playlist for Radio-DJ.
That way I can control very good how often a song gets repeated.

2 or 3 is a good setting.
If you hear complete albums from time to time I would recommend to set this to 2.
Be careful with higher settings.
This works internally with exponetial calculations.
My experience is, that it works best using 1 or 2.
