Why is there garbled text in ERM's Single CH Live View Text Overlay even though language is set to simplifed chinese?

Answer

Even though NVR and ERM's Windows language are set to Simplified Chinese, if DVR/NVR's
Text Overlay script settings are set to non-Simplified Chinese (as below) then there will be
garbled text displayed in remote applications' Stream 1:

This can be solved by changing the DVR/NVR Text Overlay script settings to Chinese
language. RD will also change the way remote application decodes text by using GV-NVR
PC's Windows region/language settings instead of following the script settings in GV-NVR's
Text Overlay in the future

Note:

1. GV-ERM(for Windows) and Control Center's Stream 2 will not have the above issue. This is
because stream 2 is already encoded with Text Overlay in NVR before being sent to remote
apps. This is also the reason why Text Overlay is normal when viewing multiply
layouts(stream 2) and garbled when viewed in single CH(stream 1).

2. GV-DVR/NVR Text overlay script settings will not affect NVR's live view Text Overlay. This
is because live view Text Overlay follows the Windows region/language settings while
playback follows the Text Overlay script settings. Therefore, wrong language selected in Text
Overlay script settings will cause GV-DVR/NVR's local playback to display garbled text.
