View Full Version : Display Chinese Song Titles

2007-06-08, 10:41
This information might be out there already but I finally got my SB3 to display Chinese song titles. So I want to share the steps I used.

Here is my setup:
SlimServer 6.5.3
Itunes (I don't think it matters)
Windows XP

Here is what make mine works:
Control Panel --> Regional and Language Options --> Advanced (tab)
Under Language for Non-Unicode Programs, select one of the Chinese options. I picked Chinese (Hong Kong S.A.R.).

After rebooting the computer, everything works like a charm. It doesn't matter if I select to use iTunes in the Slim server settings or not.

Hope this helps...

didn't work at all!

Now my slim.exe won't start and its giving me a bunch of encoding erros.

slim.exe runs fine if I just switch back to English (US) as my locale
