EPG Search, enigma2 and UTF-8, ISO6937

  • Hello everybody, I have big problem with EPG search. I found that content of my EPG cache (in my DM800, [Moderator] Image is in violation of the Boardrules [/Moderator]) is coded with ISO6397 (CSLink provider, Czech&Slovakia). If I want to search some strings I have to encode them from UTF-8 to ISO6937 before search, but this approach is not very good for all languages and all epg providers. I have some questions:


    1. Which ISO number is right for DVB & EPG broadcasting in Czech&Slovakia? There are three possible norms ISO639-2 (http://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/IG/ert/iso639.htm), ISO6397 and ISO6937 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO/IEC_6937). I think that correct norm is the ISO6937 but people in enigma2 team says that ISO6397 is correct.
    2. Is it possible to set (somewhere in the config) enigma2 in order to store EPG into cache always in the UTF-8 coding (for all providers) - something like auto recode from actual isoxxxx to utf8?


    Many thanks.

  • This is out of specification.


    No Chance to fix this ... The Provider have to fix the EPG.


    Every DVB-Texts encoded in UTF-8 have to be start with first byte 0x15 ... can be found in ETSI Spec EN300468.
