Shuffle NOT Random
Perhaps someone can help me understand. This is both a roku and chromecast issue for me. So, for the past two months or so I have been using playlists. I made one large playlist of sitcoms that my fiancé and I both like, that we put on when we're cooking dinner, etc. Depending on what we are doing we will watch anywhere from 3-8 episodes a night. I always start the playlist by shuffling. Here's the issue: About 1-3 times per night we will have to skip an episode that we have seen in the previous few days. It ALWAYS happens. At first, I thought maybe this is just a small sample size as it had just been a couple of weeks. But now, we are dealing with two months worth. I could also understand if this were a small playlist, but it totals 1100 episodes. A random number generator might give you the same results on back to back days occasionally, but not over such a large sample. Can anyone explain how Plex shuffles? I'm baffled. Thanks.
