Thanks for the offer, but I stopped using xmltv grabber a long time
ago. I am quite happy otherwise with the on-the-air EPG.

I'm still not sure if I understand how this works. At least the OTA
EPG seems to not update older data, so maybe when new data is fetched
and a channel happens to provide the other language the languages get
mixed up. But I'm not sure...
