Looking for a bit of advice.
I was wondering if it was possible to play your songs by genre similar to what you can do on Zune at the moment? I thought that this might not be a feature of Xbox Music, so decided to try and create a playlist with all of my songs from one genre in it... however that's capped to 1000 which I think is pretty silly.
Slightly OT to the main point of this thread:
Like other's I'm having major problems trying to work out how to Sync my devices (between my Win 8 PC (which contains all of my music) and my surface (where I would like all my music automatically transferred too for offline listening). Is there anyway of doing this easily? Even through some sort of file transfer app?
I also spent some time adding all the album art work/artists genres etc too my collection some time ago on Zune... now switched to Xbox Music and it's a complete mess! lol :(.

Hey there, just want to confirm, you are talking about the WinRT Xbox Music app on Windows 8 rather than on the phone?
Sounds like you're not so I'm going to say this:- When you are in Xbox Music there is a way to order things by Genre - its the arrow where you arrange things by. Problem is, the Genre is now what the Store classifies it as, for instance I have drum and bass, techno, house (thats all just "DANCE") yep, its pretty useless. Actually Xbox music is a total mess, its good for the casual (and I mean casual) music fan but for anything else its barely fit for purpose. Performance, features, stability, all bad.

Was this what you were looking for? RB
