View Full Version : Problem with artists having accented characters

I have a FLAC file with embedded cuesheet and tag information on the
numbered vorbis comment format.
The artist is Hüsker Dü.
When Browsing Artist, this album occurs twice. One correct listing, and one
listing with empty album.

Having only this file in my Music Folder, slimserver displays:
Your music library contains 1 album with 20 songs by 2 artists

I have no problems with albums by artists without accented characters.

I am using latest nightly (SlimServer_v2005-04-14) on WinXP.

Anyone else experiencing problems with artists having accented characters?

Hi Steinar,

I had a similar problem with accented characters, but this seems to be
resolved in the 04-12 nightly, which I'm using now. So unless the bug
reappeared in the 04-14 it must be something else. See here for
reference: http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1346

There is also an open bug concerning accented characters displayd
wrongly on the Squeezebox UI, but this doesn't really seem to apply to
your problem. Anyway, here's the link:

I have opened bug #1384:

I have uploaded an example file to Bugzilla which reproduces the error.
