UTF-8 characters stripped from FLAC tags
« on: December 19, 2010, 06:39:35 pm »
I have a strange problem that I first thought was in my Linux or Samba-setup, but now I've narrowed it down to be LMCE specific.
What happens is that tracks with non-standard-us-english characters are manipulated, either by LMCE or by Squeezebox Server.
Tag content before scan:
Track title: Älskad Från Första Stund
Album title: 17 sånger

After Scan:
Track title: (blank)
Album title: 17 s

At the position of the first non-english the tag is truncated.

Any hints?
