What's wrong here?
I coded this in libsi/si.c as ISO8859-15 (without the first '-'). I guess we can change this to ISO-8859-15 just as well. Please try it and let me know if that fixes it. >> I had a look into vdr.c and found out, that the dot is used delimiter >> between language and codeset - as "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" does not contain any >> dot, vdr fails to recognize this.

There's getenv("LANG"), setlocale(LC_CTYPE, ""), and Thomas Günther recently suggested in a PM to use nl_langinfo(CODESET). Quite a few options - which one is the right one? ;-) Somebody with insight please advise exactly how to do this - I personally just set LANG to de_DE.iso8859-1 and live happily ever after ;-) Klaus _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
