I have added "-L /usr/local/src/VDR/locale" to runvdr, that didn't make any difference, if I get the error message from run vdr then it still says ./locale in that message. Not sure if that is important or not. Anyway I have set export LC_COLLATE=en_GB.utf8 export LANG=en_GB.utf8 at the start of runvdr, and that got rid of the missing locales messages. That gives me the following: 1. OSD is in English 2. VDRADMIN data is also in English 3. German EPG is shown correctly with all special characters that I have seen up to now (umläute etc.). 4. English EPG is shown, mostly correctly. But for example "Her's" is shown as "Her&apos.s". But, I get that info via xmltv2vdr, so I wonder if the problem is there instead of in vdr.
