I've been using vdr for very long time (since 1.2.1 afair), but the
polish epg problem is unfortunately still here in recent versions.
I made a deep analysis of the problem and here are the details.
Polish broadcasters are ignorants regarding dvb standards!
It's very sad but it's true :(
Of course e-mails to them about it doesn't give an any effect...
There are two kind of problems with polish providers on HotBird 13E:
First problem is that similar to one handled by CharsetOverride:
Part of the channels are encoded in ISO-8859-2 while not announce that,
this can be handled with VDR_CHARSET_OVERRIDE correctly.
The other part cannot be currently handled correctly in vdr without patching:
Some channels are using ISO6937 while announcing ISO-8859-5! (sic!)
There are also providers which are respecting standards,
but the above bad cases are for two main polish digital platforms,
so it would be great if vdr finally would handle it correctly.
The EPGFixer-plugin has the capability to fix character set problem you
have described. It can be found at
