Anyone has information on getting SB3 to work with Chinese titles or if there is a Chinese & English Slimserver version?
TIA.

Not sure if you're asking if it can display Asian fonts, or if you are looking for instructions on how to get it to work. Answers to both questions are available pretty easily by searching the forums.

A recent thread which gives a basic explanation is here (http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=34412&highlight=chinese).

More detailed explanation is in the ReadMe folder after you install Slimserver.

Or is there a specific query or point you've got stuck at? If so, the minimum details that people will need are:

What OS(Windows/Mac/Linux)?
What version SB (1/2/3/Transporter)?
What version of the firmware (6.3.1/6.5.1/6.5.2/something else)?

I've never done anything special to get Chinese titles to work with my SB2/Transporter. Am running 6.5.1, but it worked fine for me since 6.2.2....

Thanks both for this. I should have been more specific. I ripped my CDs into Flac using EAC & by doing so, the Chinese characters are not converted into a readable format in SB3. Thinking a bit more, it might be more a EAC/Flac issue rather than a Slimserver one. Any help on fixing this will be appreciated as well.

I have been using an older version of Slimserver 6.2.1. I have a SB3 & using Window XP OS (home verison).

Cheers,
Ian

6.2.1 is too old. In order to handle non-latin characters, you'll need
6.2.2 or newer.
