View Full Version : Only "New Music" Shows Unicode Characters (The Songs Were Even From Nomad Jukebox)!?

Hello people,

First off I would like to say that this player is as solid as it is advertised. But then, I have been having a hard time trying to get unicode (Chinese) characters shown on the web server and on the player display itself. I could only manage to get them shown up with the correct characters when the songs were transferred from my old Nomad Jukebox. The correct characters can be seen from that "New Music" folder of the player/webserver (Go figure!). Other than that, I don't have them correctly shown from my other folders except "New Music". Yeah, I could have been going back and forth transferring all of my cd collection to and from the old Nomad Jukebox, but it is going to be pain in my rear end if I did that. Anyways, can someone on this forum help me out? Thanks for reading and in advance for helping me out!

for starts, this is the install file for 6.5. This is considered the unstable
build for the time being and I would invite you to download the 6.2.2 nightly
builds instead. The unicode support is in 6.2.2, but 6.5's web interface is
currently in flux.

Hello again,

Thanks for the replies first off, so is this (SlimServer_6_2_x_v2005-11-17.ZIP) the right one then? Thanks again!

P.S. For wifi, can I use SB3 in public facilities like colleges and cafes that actually use username and password instead of WEP or WPA? I do not want to bring laptop everytime I just want to listen to music. Thanks for the third time.

the .EXE would likely be preferrable if you want to install in windows,
but yes,
this is the filename in every other respect.

I am not sure if that would work or not. In all cases that I've seen, the
username/password is to get past the hotspot proxy. The wifi is
actually fully
open. I woudl think that making use of such a connection would not be
possible
due to the proprietary software checks used to verify ident.

If the connection just requires a WPA passcode, then you should be ok.
