[mythtv-users] xmltv (tv_grab_jp) and Japanese characters

I have been trying to get the program guide working, but am having
difficulty with obtaining the schedule.  Actually, I can get the
schedule just fine, but the characters retrieved are incorrectly
encoded.  Here is an example:

~$ tv_grab_jp --enable-readstr
Malformed UTF-8 character (1 byte, need 3, after start byte 0xe7)
at /usr/share/perl5/Date/Manip.pm line 7168.
using config filename /home/xxxxxx/.xmltv/tv_grab_jp.conf
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE tv SYSTEM "xmltv.dtd">
 <channel id="0018.ontvjapan.com">
    <display-name lang="ja_JP">とちぎテレビ</display-name>
    <display-name lang="en">TTV</display-name>

Does anyone have any suggestions?
