When i use my PS3 together with Bubba i can't se å, ä or ö. Is there any way to configure this? It seems to be a Mediatomb related issue cause when other media servers is used the PS3 display the letters.

add support for å,ä,ö

In the config.xml, add following lines:


This made my "å,ä,ö" display as intended, instead of previously as "?".

Ps. Dont forget to delete the database and restart the mediatomb service after applying changes to config.xml. MT needs to rebuild the whole database.

Hmm, i don't have that directory, and i can't find the file with

Code: Select all

find -name sqlite.db
from root directory.

Could it be somewhere else?

Edit: oops my bad, found the file in /var/db/sqlite3.db

Found the file but in another folder as mentioned. Did not delete it yet cause i couldn't make it to rename the file. Tried to figure out the rename function without success.

When i looked in the sqlite3.db file with VI i couldn't see anything, i was expecting a list of all the shared files. Can there be more files named sglite3.db for other applications than MediaTomb?

So should i delete the file, or just delete all the info in the file, and is it the right file even if it's in /var/db/sqlite3.db???

sorry, i have a modified version.
stop mediatomb
/etc/init.d/mediatomb stop
mv /var/db/sqlite3.db /var/db/sqlite3.db.bak
start mediatomb (with the new config)
/etc/init.d/mediatomb start
