In the past, you may have been using Venus 1500 in scheduled mode. Scheduled mode allows you to set up playlists so you can run different during the time periods you set. You can change this setting by navigating to the Venus 1500 menu and selecting Venus 1500 Options.

That’s it!

This will allow you to set up playlists to play for specific timeframes, rather than just playing one set of messages all the time. When you change this setting, you will need to start fresh and create all new playlists. Check out these articles for more information on this:
