Am I missing something, is there a way to mark a provider as being my "main" one? Or is the workaround rather replacing the character set for all incorrectly recognized ones (assuming that the application determines the fact that it is incorrect)? If the latter case occures, what if there are several providers not marking the encoding right, but their epg content actually need different encodings, will they all use the same encoding specified in VDR_CHARSET_OVERRIDE? (This reminds me of the early UTF-8 patch which required setting the encoding for every channel in channels.conf, which of course is ugly, but could handle different EPG encoding needs in case of multiple providers failing to mark this correctly). > External data source simply need to provide the strings in the > encoding used on your local system (presumably UTF-8). So it should work in the case of correctly handling external data, thanks. BTW, OSD then stays unaffected by VDR_CHARSET_OVERRIDE? It might be worth renaming this to something more clearly specifying that it only affects EPG.
