Hi, I have an app that retrieves EPG data via SVDRP, but the enconding (or something related) is fubar and characters like åäö (å ä and ö) are all wrong in the data I display. What is the encoding used for the EPG data? I've tried forcing UTF-8 and ISO-8859-1 and whatnot and all I get for those characters is garbage.
What should I really be trying to interpret the data as? My VDR system and the desktop where I run my app use en_US.UTF-8 system but I assume the DVB standard specifies something else for the data? If I do a normal telnet connection to the SVDRP port and do some LSTE the data is fine, the special characters stay special. PEBKAC, but where?
