I found the following code in epg.c lines 633-636:
// VDR can't usefully handle newline characters in the title and shortText of
// data, so let's always convert them to blanks (independent of the setting
strreplace(title, '\n', ' ');
strreplace(shortText, '\n', ' ');
AFAIK, VDR _can_ handle newlines in the title and shortText,
as long as they are represented as '|'.
So I wonder if it would not be an improvement to change
the above code into
// Change newline characters into '|', which will be displayed as newline.
strreplace(title, '\n', '|');
strreplace(shortText, '\n', '|');
