    Help with Cyrillic needed!

    I have read some postings on this forum and followed the instructions about installing some fonts and .enc files but with no luck so far. Would anybody be able to help me to get me russian/ukrainian (cyrillic) songs' tags work. I can not read anything in my SlimServer. I am not a super tech guy, so plain language would be appreciated. thanx.

    What version of SlimServer are you using? And what OS?

    And what revision of 6.2.2? There should be a number at the bottom of the
    first Settings page.

    Are you running the latest nightly?

    I use SB3.
    Still no changes. Can't read cyrillic.

    Ok. Could you send me one of the files you're having issues with?

    Thank you.

    The issue here is that the file is tagged with ID3v1, using ISO-8859-5, which
    is not technically valid. What tag program are you using?

    Is it possible to convert your tags to ID3v2.3 or 2.4, which allow
    UTF-16 and UTF-8 encoding?

    If any of the above doesn't make sense to you, please let me know.

    I converted those tags using Ultra Tag Editor to ID3v2. It has an option to copy from ID3v1 to v2. Is that what I was supposed to do? Not sure what's next. I tried to rescan my music library and tried viewing files using UTF-8 encoding from View in IE. Stll can not see it. I have sent you same file converted now. Any ideas? Thanks you for all your help.
