Based on the code revision it looks that if both PLA and M3U are configured, then PLA is preffered.

I guess that leaving there just M3U solves this problem?

Do you mean as Supported Format (under Auto-Conversion rules in the Device Profile)? None are listed by default for Playlists so it would seem users only have M3U listed as Supported Format after they add it. Although PLA is what MM is sending by default to the users device, it isn't listed as Supported Format.

Yes I mean Device->Options->Auto-conversion->Supported formats

If I have both PLA, M3U there, then PLA are synced, but if I remove PLA then M3U is preffered, isn't this the same in your case?

Nevertheless waiting for confirmation here:

No, I've never seen Playlists listed as Supported Formats (ie. default setting set by MM like set for Audio and Video). This means as forum post replied that only M3U is listed after the user adds it. I just checked for Galaxy Note and Sansa Clip+ and neither has any playlist type listed as Support Format.

It really doesn't work for the user. Attached is his device profile (GT-I9199 - card.mmdc), if I import the profile then M3U is listed between supported formats, but clicking [Set formats] button doesn't list the M3U. So there seems to be a bug in the format handling.

Hmm, further testing shown that the profile behaves different way on 4.0.7 and 4.1 (I previously tested 4.1), there was most probably a change in structure of auto-conversion data that causes the issue.

It seems that it is caused by revision 14864 that hasn't been merged into 4.0 in course of fixing 0009216

So the migging SVN revision 14864 caused that
On first connect, 4.0.7 adds the M3U to SuppVFormatsList and it works, but M3U is not shown, until user adds it manually, but it is added to SuppFormatsList (old structure). The result is that M3U is shown, but doesn't work.

i.e. it is fixed in 4.1

If we want to merge it into 4.0.8 then the revision 14864 needs to be merged.

MediaMonkey no correctly assigns Playlist Supported Type to devices.
