Sony continuous playback issue with Random Music

This is just a note to those with Sony devices who'd like to play random music.

It was reported a few times (here, hereand here that I could find) that Serviio and Sony devices don't play nicely together when playing "Random Music". Specifically, Sony devices will play one or two songs then stop playback rather than continuing to the next song (in my case, it was after one - and I couldn't skip to the next song either).

Turns out, I had already created a (Windows-only) workaround before I discovered this. See this thread: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=22186

In that thread I was talking about creating random video playlists, but it works just as well for creating a random music playlist, and my Sony device (BDV-E190) does continue to the next song as you'd expect.
