    Scanner bug - LMS: 7.9.1 - 1519287262 @ Thu Feb 22

    Hello Michael,

    A bug keeps reappearing on the macOS scanner: it chokes on a track with the following TITLE
    "La flűte de Pan (Pierre Lou s)".

    It dislikes the umlaut over the letter "y".

    We discussed that bug earlier. It had disappeared on March 7, only to reappear now.

    Thanks a million for your work.
    Ramez

    PS: How about a warning on the main page of the Web interface that the last scheduled rescan has failed? Better: could Jivelite, conceivably, convey this info?

    Do you get any error message? Would you have a sample file to upload?

    Do you have any link to a thread discussing this? I must assume March 7
    2017? I don't see any change related to the scanner around there. What
    happened that day is that I release 7.9.0. What LMS build are you running?

    Hmm... probably worth a thought. I'll add it to my list of ideas.

    The error message:
    Malformed UTF-8 character (fatal) at /Library/PreferencePanes/Squeezebox.prefPane/Contents/server/Slim/Utils/Text.pm line 163.

    I cannot reproduce the error now. I replaced "Lou s" by "Louys", and the scanning went through. When I restored the previous orthography, the scanner error didn't occur.

    Thanks!

    PS: Why doesn't the scanner just go on, after such a minor error? And, say, replace the "malformed" character with "?" (I know, all this takes tremendous time to program, and modify ...)

    I bet it will once you do a full wipe & rescan? I don't think anything
    has ever been done to fix this...

    If it's of any help, I have no problems with "Ysa e" with LMS running on a QNAP.
    QLMS 7.9.2@1.09b (digimaster) / QNAP 469L QTS 4.3.4
