Playlist Export misses tracks with umlauts (Ö, Ü, Ä) UTF-08 BOM vs. ANSI


my Roon 1.6 systems runs on a Mac.

I am exporting playlists and musicfiles from my roon system (MAC) to my SONY Walkman NW-WM1A via the Roon export function.
The transfer works.
All files and folders have the right labeling structure.
Problem are the playlists.
The Playlists are exported as textfiles (m3u) coded in UTF-08 BOM (from what I can see).
But the SONY Walkman (Playlists) can’t read the German umlauts (Ä,Ü,Ö) because its coded in UTF-08).
So all this files with umlauts are missing in the playlists.
I tried to convert the file from UTF-08 manually to ANSI, but this is not working.
Do you have any idea how to solve this problem?


Hi @Stefan_Janssen,

I checked with the technical team on this and they confirmed that we have a ticket in with our development team on this. I can’t provide any specific timeframes here but we will be sure to keep you updated once any information is available.


Thanks, and good to see, that I am not alone with my problem.
Hope you find a solution soon.
