Wrong language used (1 Viewer)

Hi, I'm using the latest SVN.

I have language set to english in MP and everything is in english correctly except for one place: music views.

If I run mediaportal setup and go to music->music views the views are in swedish.

And also if I use the Album view in MP the various artists albums show up as "Blandade artister" (=Various Artists in swedish).

Where can I change this?

    Fixed, please grab next public SVN build.

    As for the Various Artists Album, this is a bit difference.
    We use the translated version for "Various Artists" at the time you scan the share.
    When you have langauge Swedish at time, we will insert "Blandade artister".

    There's a workasound for that. You can have your own language file, which is applied on top of the selected language.

    in the MP\language directory create a file named "strings_user.xml" with following content:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <Language name="English" characters="255">
        <Section name="unmapped">
            <String id="340">Various Artists</String>
    Regardless which language you choose afterwards, a Various Artists will always be Various Artists
