Random playlists on load are no longer random.

For about a decade, I have made a playlist with several tv shows, shuffled that playlist, saved it, and set it to start with the plugin “party mode autostart.” Every single day, for over 10 years it has picked a new show from the list each time, because the list was reshuffled each time.

Now, it saves the random list and its always the same. I can no longer start Kodi and have a random show playing. its always the same ones in the same order.

What happened, and what can I do to fix it? Even if I have to downgrade or use an addon.

Thanks for your time.
