The DVB standard provides for a way to mark text strings, so that
applications can correctly determine the actual encoding. The
VDR_CHARSET_OVERRIDE is just a workaround in case your "main"
provider fails to correctly encode their strings.

External data source simply need to provide the strings in the
encoding used on your local system (presumably UTF-8).
