There must be an easy solution for playing in a "series"...!

Hi,

I have an audiobook with 13 chapters. Each day I want to play the same chapter in the morning and at night. Then the next day I want it to advance to the next chapter. Something like this:

Monday: 8:00 a.m. chapter 1; 8:00 p.m. chapter 1
Tuesday: 8:00 a.m. chapter 2; 8:00 p.m chapter 2
Etc.

I've set up the audiobook playlist (Intro, chapter, outro) as a scheduled event, and selected it to play in "series." However, how can I keep each chapter from advancing to the next track until the next day? Otherwise it will play chapter 1 in the morning, chapter 2 in the evening, etc.

I'd appreciate any help. The only thing I can think of is to create two separate events. But will the track still advance regardless of what event it's in?

Thanks,

Jeremy

Thank you, I have read that section of the user manual again and again and I cannot see how it answers my question.

1. I created a scheduled event to play at 8:00 a.m. and again at 8:00 p.m.
2. In that event I told it to select a track from a folder (the folder wherein my audiobook files reside).
3. I selected series as the method of track selection.
4. When it plays at 8:00 a.m. it automatically counts that track as having played. Therefore, at 8:00 p.m. it advances to the next track.

I want to play the same track at 8:00 a.m. as I do at 8:00 p.m., and then the NEXT DAY it advances to the next track in the folder.

Sorry that I simply cannot understand those instructions in the manual or your instructions.

Thanks,
Jeremy
Track List feature offers "Series" option: https://manual.djsoft.net/radioboss/en/using_track_list.htm
It does not advance automatically, you need to create another event that moves it to the next track.

This doesn't reproduce here on the latest version. "Series" selection, until advanced, always plays the same track. What RadioBOSS version do you use?
