Tracklist repeat protection not working

Hello

I'm using the lastest version of RadioBoss (I'm a new user).  I use generate pro to generate my playlists from directories.  I love it so far.

I have programmed an event that generate a playlist based on my preset created with generate pro.

Everything works fine except that even if I asked not to repeat the artist before 60 minutes, the same artist repeats.

And I did not ask the preset to ignore the repeat settings.

So what can be wrong

I also noted that in post title you say that you use the Track List repeat protection. It only works when you use the Track List feature to select tracks: http://manual.djsoft.net/radioboss/en/using_track_list.htm

If you use the playlist generator to create playlists, you should set up repeat protection there.

Hello
Thank you for your answer.  in the playlist generator, I saw the option for no repeat.  At first, from what I understood, it would use the track list repeat protection option.  When I saw that did not work, I manually specified to not repeat the artist before 30 minutes, 60 minutes for the track, album and title.

Even with those settings enabled, I still get repeats.

When you generate a playlist, it uses the repeat protection options defined in its settings: http://manual.djsoft.net/radioboss/en/settings2.htm

And, if set, repeat protection options for a particular category: http://manual.djsoft.net/radioboss/en/plgen-cat4.htm

Track List repeat protection options are used for Track List only.

As for playlist generator, do you get repeats in one playlist, or, for instance, you generate two playlists and get repeats between them?

Track source does not matter in this case, repeat protection works regardless of it. Do you see any error messages in the playlist generator log after the playlist is created?
Also, what RadioBOSS version do you use?
