I gave it up. The character shown on the display are all alien's language.
For some of them, I changed to English on iTunes. For now, that is the only
way, I think.

Hi,

I'm thinking of encoding my wife's CD collection to mp3 and then serving via
slimserver to iTunes(iBook) and a squeezebox. The songs will be stored on a
Japanese language enabled linux server.

The only thing is that I am worried that the squeezebox or slimserver will
not support the character sets of the Japanese CDs she has.

Anyone here have experience of storing/playing non-latin-1 titled songs?

Many thanks,
Ian

That's a bit of a deal breaker. I wonder if the new AirPort Express
(AirMac Express in Japan) would be a better solution then. I was
thinking about it before but it means that a certain machine has to be
kept running with iTunes. I suppose I could use a old windows laptop
and do it that way.

Ian,

We are very interested in supporting Japanese, now that we have a
display which can handle the character set. But we do not have the
expertise in-house to do the localization and create the fonts. If
anyone would like to assist, please let us know.

PS everyone, there's a plugins contest going on right now, and we
REALLY would like to support Japanese. ;)
