I have a movie with Russian characters in the name. Name loaded by Metagenerator 3.79

Pytivo fails during display to my tv with:
ERROR:pyTivo:Exception during request from ('192.168.1.14', 57354)
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/SocketServer.py", line 599, in process_request_thread
self.finish_request(request, client_address)
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/SocketServer.py", line 334, in finish_request
self.RequestHandlerClass(request, client_address, self)
File "/usr/local/pytivo20160708/httpserver.py", line 91, in __init__
client_address, server)
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/SocketServer.py", line 655, in __init__

And the folder shows as not available

Is this a known bug?

Please clarify what you mean by "... loaded by Metagenerator 3.79"

Also, the current version of MG3 is 3.81 and recent changes have involved handling of special characters.

I and/or WmcBrine will probably need more details in order to respond.

It's actually a known not-bug, as in, considerable effort has gone into making it work. So yeah, more details please.

(Starting with, this is not the most relevant part of the traceback... that'd be at the end.)

ok, the movie comes out of metagenerator, and is renamed by metagenerator with russian characters.
PLEX shows it as mostly ? characters, like m??????????? ??????.mkz, windows shows the movie in russian characters.

Pytivo dies with it that way, saying directory is unavailable.

I renamed the movie/metatxt file and jpg, the same in english manually, and it worked fine to plex and pytivo

When it happens again, I'll post on this thread with a full traceback

Thanks

difl-I will grab latest mg

ok, mg 3.81, is fixed! It properly shows chinese characters.

Look up the movie 'A Better tomorrow', it was russian, now correctly chinese
like 英雄本色.

Since I dont know chinese, before I select and load te movie, i go into the info page about movie with title on top, and change to english. Works perfectly thru pyTivo

Thanks!
