Hi,

I use localized characters in MP, like: é,á,ő,ú,ű etc. I can see them in the EPG, news, weather, music menu with no problem.

BUT.
When MP send EPG, music info etc. to the VFD, the characters are gone. The VFD crashed them or simply does not appear at all....

I use Silverstone LC11M, with Imoon VFD, with the External plugin.
Before this, I used seperate VFD with LCD smartie plugin, and everything was fine about localized character sets.

Any suggestion?

Thx.

csab.

    :!: :!: Please post your questions about the External Display plugin in the appropriate thread... It holds a lot of information and the answers to most of your questions will already be there... :!: :!:

    To answer your question, please check the externaldisplay.xml configuration file. There is a section in it to configure the character translations.

    You can have the plugin translate ú to u, é to e, etc...

    I know this is not the ideal solution, but at least you get rid of those funny characters...
