I originally posted some of this at the end of the Linkstation SBS install thread.
I have a new Linkstation Quad Pro which comes with SBS 7.5.1 pre installed in its "firmware". However I have a couple of issues which I hope someone here can help with:
1. Chinese and Japanese characters in the tags don't show up at all on my Squeezebox screen (nor on softqueeze). Not even blank spaces - they just disappear completely. If I set the display to show the actual file name it shows up as garbage characters. NO issues at all when looking at the information on the SBS web admin pages - all characters displayed ok. I had no issues with this on my old server (Clarkconnect - still on the old version I know!) with SBS 7.2. I checked the tags and they all seem correct (shown as flac for my flac files in mp3tag).
2. Plug ins don't run. I have this message "as you're running Squeezebox Server in safe mode, the plugins are not available". There are no options to start it normally so I assume that Buffalo have somehow hobbled this, deliberately or otherwise. Any help to get them started would be appreciated. I use linux infrequently (just enough to follow instructions and understand some of what I'm following!) so hoping if anyone could assist with this? I assume I will have to try to use acp_commander to get root access (if this can be done).
3 Can anyone decipher the following which is part of the log file? I suspect that this could provide come clues to the issues I'm having:
