    I have iTunes match enabled on my computer and on my iOS device. I made a playlist that consists of 195 songs on my computer. I opened Music on my phone, and I see the playlist there with all 195 songs no problem. I open iTunes on my computer and delete a few songs down to 128. My iOS device still shows 195 songs.. I restart iTunes and my iOS device and iTunes still shows 128 songs, and my iOS device shows 195. I hit update iTunes Match on iTunes on my computer and all those songs I deleted are back and it is showing 195 songs on the computer now too. How do I update my playlist using iTunes Match? Is the service this buggy/unreliable?

    I also noticed I have reset my play count on iTunes on the computer and it is all back too. It is like any changes on iTunes on the computer are not updating to iTunes Match.

    What you might want to do is remove the playlist from your idevice. Then sync so it removes the songs from your device. Go in and make changes on your computer to the playlist and then add it back to your device and resync. It's not graceful, I know, but I had a similar situation where one of my kids assigned ratings to songs on my phone and it updated my computer. I fixed it on the computer but every time I resync'ed the phone it would re-update the false ratings in my computer.

    Ok I did that and it removed my changes from the computer again. They just aren't sticking.
