History

Updated by Martin Mrvka over 11 years ago

tvheadend converts strings to utf8 based on the dvb charset information.

If no charset information is provided by the epg provider, it assumes the standard ISO6937 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO/IEC_6937). If the provider encodes standard with a different charset (e.g. ISO8859-1), then this behavior happens. It's a fault of the epg provider.

For example:
Your EPG provider sends a ISO8859-1 encoded é (which is 0xE9), but doesn't provide any charset information. So tvheadend assumes ISO6937 as charset and in ISO6937, the byte 0xE9 points to the character Ø.
