#469 Handling of special(german, french) characters

closed-fixed

It seams that the output from the graber is mixed up.

I get non standard fillings in my list like for example:

Züri News in the mysql Database and also in the EPG display in Mythtv
or in hex
5A C3 83 C2 BC 72 69 20 4E 65 77 73
instead of Züri News

I first suspected the TV Frontend (Mythtv) to be the culprit and asked there to fix the Bug. But the answer was the following:

#10627: Mythfilldatabase 0.25/fixes and special characters (ä ö ü à é è etc.) not
inserted correctly in mythconverg

Comment (by dekarl@…):

"Züri News" sounds like Switzerland which makes tv_grab_ch_search likely
which seems to have encoding issues since April 11th (see
http://www.crustynet.org.uk/~xmltv-tester/squeeze/nightly/ )

{{{
Testing tv_grab_ch_search

file contains unexpected control characters
look here "urde. Bei den Ãœberresten hande"
^
Errors found in t_ch_search_1_2.xml
tv_grab_ch_search did not validate ok. See t_ch_search_commands.log for a
list of the commands that were used
tv_grab_ch_search has errors: badiso8859
}}}

The bug should be forwarded upstream to the xmltv tracker next.

    Hi,

    where can I find the version that has been fixed from the maintainer (betlit) ?

    If a new version has not already been generated, are there any changes that can be applied manually for the time being?

    Many thanks!
