smart playlists won't live update

i sync my media views to smart playlists, and some of those media views include ratings as elements. unfortunately when i adjust the ratings on the ipod, the smart playlists don't change accordingly.

any ideas?

5.32/2.00

Are you sure that they are "live"? (The LIVE marker must show in the iPod view in Winamp, see the Wiki for an image)

ok... turns out my queries were too complex and used elements which are not supported in live update mode.

but this brings up a question:

i have several smart playlists that i need to use which function as follows:

1) [SUBSET of winamp media library]
2) songs in SUBSET where rating=5
3) songs in SUBSET where rating=1
4) songs in SUBSET which are not rated

SUBSET doesn't always function along artist or album lines, so i can't just query by that. short of tagging all the songs in the comment field, how can i do this?

itunes has the "playlist is _______" command for defining subsets and the winamp library lets you search based on folders (ie filename HAS "subset") but how can i do this in ml_ipod?

At least one thing where iTunes is better....
I think this kind of query is not possible in Winamp, right? You can't refer to the contents of another smart view or playlist in a query. Correct me if I'm wrong, guys.
