  • Show names with special characters

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

    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 Ã* character is in the extended ascii set above position 128, see

        Fixed in v9.0.18

          Thanks! I was able to add CarnivÃ*le to my DB. Consider this item resolved.
