MP3 Playlist Shuffle Function

I currently have the WD TV Live Plus model WDBABX0000NBK-NESN.  I’ve had it for about a year now, but I haven’t been too impressed with its shuffle function for music playlists.  Does anyone know how the newer version of the WD TV Live (model WDBHG70000NBK-HESN) compares with regard to this function?  It seems like the older model has some issues particularly when the playlist is large, but I don’t want to invest in a newer model if it has the same problems.

I have the same player that you have and the shuffle funtion is work great for me.

When you said that it has some issues when the playlist is large, what you mean?

My music libray is around 20,000 files and it shuffle as expected.

I’ve had a problem when I use a playlist with several hundred files in that the player only selects songs from just a few albums, not all of them.  There was a discussion on this issue in one of the other forums and it was determined it was caused by a firmware update.
