It would be nice of a user configurable limit could be set to the number of automatics playlist entries played. Really it is just a way to keep from playing everything it a manual entry is not made.
Kids start watching a movie from list. They turn off tv and go to bed, but leave movie steaming to bdp. It will continue playing the rest of the movies on the list. A setting to allow x number of plays before needing manual input would stop it steaming unnecessarily. (So would teaching the kids, but I bet sw would be easier).
