  • Show names with special characters

    Is there anything that can be done to allow SR to deal with show names with special characters, like "Carnivàle"?

    This is what happened the last time I tried to add it:

    Looking into this now, thanks!

      It seems like the issue is that the à character is in the extended ascii set above position 128, see

        Fixed in v9.0.18

          Thanks! I was able to add Carnivàle to my DB. Consider this item resolved.
