How about adding the option of not playing songs of the same artist for "x" songs?
You can configure the input playlist (more or less) in that way.
For auto playlists you can set a criteria like "last played" > 5 hours.
That way a song won't be used by Radio-DJ.
But I doubt that it would resolve the problem.
Since this behavior seems to be related to the number of songs that is generated in advance.
As long as the song has not been played it has a high possibility to get selected again by Radio-DJ.
Even the criteria "last played" or you suggestion "don't play the same artist again" would not change this,
since both only work when the song already *has been* played.
I'm thinking about how to fix this, but I haven't had any usable idea yet...
There are just a few workarounds to make this problem smaller:
- Set Favor factor not higher than 1
- in Option / Player / Auto-DJ set "Automatically maintain at least x upcoming tracks in now playing" to only 1 or 2 (or none)
Using those two settings reduce the probability of playing the same song in a short time.
