    I'm trying to use tasker to shuffle ringtones and notifications. I'm using an LG Optimus T. Its shuffling the tones, but when some of them play, they only play for a split second before stopping. Any help would be appreciated.

    The point of having a ringtone that sounds different from others' ringtones is that you can recognize by its sound that it is your phone that's ringing, when it does. To be able to recognize your own ringtone it needs to be reliably the same every time. Shuffle that ringtone and you will never recognize by its sound that it is your phone that's ringing. You will only know that it's your phone that's ringing when you see it light up. I.o.w. in that scenario a ringtone is totally useless, really just noise pollution, and only causes confusion all around. It also takes longer to answer calls.

    I use shuffle tone to change my ringtones. Works great and I love it, have been using it for over a year!

    If you're talking about this profile from the Wiki:

    Changeringtone - Tasker Wiki

    The problem might be that it's changing the ringtone based on the Phone Ringing event - when the phone is actually ringing. Try changing the context for the profile to Phone Idle instead. This way it will change the ringtone after completing a call, and not interfere with the actual ringing of the phone.
