Just wondering if the problem of having a large number of items on a playlist has been addressed?
The last topic I found that addressed this problem was this one:
I seem to remember a few more since, but I don't remember if it has been fixed. I know I ran it into the problem today with 1.7.8 CMS. Layout was going along fine, until I altered the schedule. Then after that the payer almost refused to even acknowledge that it was needing to play the play list. In the following image, I saw that the playlist was there, all the content downloaded, but for whatever reason not scheduled on the player, even though it was in the scheduler. It is layout 7. The layout is also not shown as invalid on the player or the CMS.
Only solution for now was to breakup the layout and playlist into two layouts and then update the schedule for all affected displays. Not ideal, but it works.
Has 1.8 addressed this problem?
