The next command still stops the playlist when using tracklist!
Can you please provide additional information? A screenshot of how RadioBOSS windows looks will help, so we test it here with the same settings and playlist contents.

Dmitry, it appears there is a problem when running the "fadeout" command followed by "next".

At 7:59:55 fadeout 5000 [fades current playlist track x OK then stops]
At 8:00:00 next starts the playlist again but track X repeats.

The reason why we have a next command in there is to make sure the playlist continues if there happens to be no event at 8:00:00.    If there is a scheduled event at 8:00:00 it works fine.    But often the event has to be dis-enabled depending on the content and this requires the "next" command to ensure continuation of the playlist music.  Modifying "next"so it plays track X+1 would work....however....

Wouldn't it be more elegant to have a new "fade" command option that did NOT STOP the playlist?  It is dangerous if someone removes an event and there is still a fadeout command in there, as RB will stop and stay stopped and the silence detector will never activate.  :P

We are using latest version of RB.  I hope this is a feasible bugfix.

Why not use the next 5000 command instead of the two commands you use? It will fade out the current track and move to the next track.
