    On the Roku Soundbridge there is an option to SKIP any songs that are unchecked in iTunes. This feature is really useful if you have lots of seasonal or archival type music (christmas, etc) that you may not want to listen to all the time. Is there any way to prevent :apple:TV from playing unchecked files when you "Shuffle All Songs"?

    thanks

    Right click and Get Info (or cmd+i) on the song file or group of files and at the bottom there is an option to include or not to include the song when shuffling.

    Hmmm... weird. Just today I noticed that only 2 of mu Audiobooks are showing up on my tv, because this is how I manage syncing books to my iPod.

    So, I don't know how or why, but for Audiobooks anyway, if you just uncheck them, they don't show up on tv.

    It seems to work that way for all content, I believe.
