First off: I'll be getting my (first) iPod in two days, so I can't really try this out for myself at the moment. Anyway, I've got a pretty easy scenario - at least I hope it is. Like many others, I have a music library that's too big to fit on the iPod. However, I want to have a wide variety of smart playlists available on it; for instance: "Genre is A OR Genre is B OR Genre is C). Such playlists would, in total, encompass every song I have - which leads to the problem: I want to sync, say, the "3.5+ stars" playlist and a few others with all their tracks, but I also want the playlists above without syncing all matching tracks (as I said, that would be my entire library). Is this doable? Easily? I don't quite know how the iTunes/iPod interface works, so... I'm hoping I can create playlists directly on the iPod (in iTunes, that is) rather than in my computer library, or something to that effect.
