1. Play a music playlist
2. ESC back to Home and select Pictures
3. Select a pictures folder
4. Select the "R.Slideshow" button
Result: This always launches the same exact set of pictures, and it does not shuffle. If I ESC back and select "R.Slideshow" again, it will behave properly - selecting the first picture from any random subfolder and shuffling approprately.
Expected: The first time the user selects "R.Slideshow" it should start with a random picture and shuffle immediately.

    I also have the problem that R.Slideshow does not shuffle the first time you select it. Go back and select it again, and the shuffle takes place.

    Will be much appreciated if one of the DEVS can help with this.

    Can anyone else please test and confirm this problem? Or am I doing something wrong?
