    It appears that after moving to Vista (32) songs with Russian or French characters in the filename/tag do not play anymore. While browsing for artist/album non-English characters display correctly. Firefly version 1498 and the most recent beta firware on Roku (2.7b11). Any suggestions?

    So they display alright in iTunes or on the soundbridge, just don’t stream? Is that correct?

    And the same build worked on XP, is that right?

    Yes, soundbridge displays names correctly (i don’t use Itunes). Onlya after pressing play i get “Unable to play “…boxes…” / Play Next / Stop”

    I used build 1376 on XP, tried 1498 today, and everything works with both builds. There’s more to it. I shared the WML library through Vista media sharing, and soundbridge was able to play the files. I also tried to convert ape to flac and tag the files in Russian under Vista. Soundbridge played FLAC files without any problems. I’ll experiment with re-tagging/renaming the WML files and/or converting them to FLAC under Visa (wanted to move everything to FLAC anyway) and see if something helps. I’ll post if I find the solution.

    So to be sure — flac transcodes okay, even with non-latin filenames, but wma does not? Is that right?

    well, it looks like it is really difficult to pinpoint what works and what does not… I just tried to experiment and converted 4 albums in ape format to flac and wml: 2 albums under XP (one converted to flac, one to wml), and 2 in Vista. The tags and filenames are in Russian. All 4 play without any problems. Older albums still do not play…
