Do you have Japanese fonts installed?

Yes, from fonts-japanese-0.20061016-6.fc7

Not all fonts contain the japanese characters.

I don't think its a system level font problem, since I can display the file names in Japanese.

Also I think the titles you select have to be in UTF-8 to display.

I figured it out. Using the id3v2 utility, I dumped the tags to a file. nkf ( network kanji filter ) identifies the coding as shift jis. :(

id3v2 --list File > out
nkf -g out

I can use nkf to convert to UTF8 and display to tags to the console:

nkf -oc utf8 out

So now I guess I need to make a little script the converts the encoding of the tags. Sigh.

My wife has hundreds of albums. She has been using a *ION USB turntable and Audacity to convert them to MP3s. Doesn't look like there is a way to tell Audacity what encoding to use.

You don't say what operating system and which version of Rythmbox you have.

I'm using Rhythmbox 0.10.0 on a Fedora 7 system.
