Have you tried this (from the VDR “INSTALL” file)?

Workaround for providers not encoding their DVB SI table strings correctly

According to "ETSI EN 300 468" the default character set for SI data is
ISO6937. But unfortunately some broadcasters actually use ISO-8859-9 or
other encodings, but fail to correctly announce that.
Users who want to set the default character set to something different can
do this by using the command line option --chartab with something
like ISO-8859-9.
