View Full Version : Slimserver stole my Janacek!

Right this has taken me an age to suss out: I've had to write a VB program to list a directory and match it to the excellent music library listing available here: http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=28457&page=4

But what happens is consistent: Slimserver is missing out Janacek. The album has been ripped so it has file names such as: "Janáček, Leoš -- Glagolitic Mass - Rattle, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra -- 01 -- Glagolitic Mass - I Uvod (Introduction).flac", and the tags match this exactly. Slimserver cannot see this, whether I get it to scan or browse to it directly.

Any ideas?

Are you running Windows? Perl on Windows has a known bug seeing files
with non-ascii file names.

Thought it might be that, and indeed it was. I note that my other accented names (such as Bartók, Béla) have the accents in sensible places, so presumably are ascii.

So removing the accents in the filename solves this, and presumably several Eastern Europeans are rather irritated by this bug!!

I use Tag&Rename to tag my files. It can automatically rename files in OS-friendly fashion, while still preserving the accented characters in the tags themselves for display on the SB's screen. An artist such as this is found, played and displayed fine on my system:

Sevĺg, Řystein

Your mail program was judged and found lacking.
