I almost missed this mail due to the large amount of mail on this list. It's
good to see that there is lots activity on the list.

It seems to work now, but what if the channel numbers are not just numbers?
Like SE03 and S followed by some number. That will be a bit hard to enter on
a remote with only numbers

I have looked at the data in the programs table and it contains those
strange looking characters, but if i look in the table for the recordings
the swedish characters looks right.
So thats probably why recordings with swedish characters don't show up in
the conflict resolution screen since the names are different.

Even tho the program table contains strange characters it looks right in the
program guide, so i think that there is some kind of character encoding
problem in mythfilldatabase and/or mythtv (probably both)
