[mythtv-users] UTF-8 characters die after changing channels.

A while back, I had solved how to get Japanese characters to display
properly in the on screen guide:
I noticed at the time some odd behavior, which I've puzzled over for a
while and have not been able to solve.
When in browse mode, I use the up and down arrows to view descriptions,
in Japanese, of what is on the other channels. The Japanese displays fine.
But, when I select a channel and go there, the information in the on
screen display turns into question marks.
If I'm not in browse mode, when I change channels, the on screen display
information is always in question marks.
There are two possibilities here:
1. After a channel is changed, the on screen display accesses some
new/different information from the database, which has not been properly
stored in utf-8 encoding
2. The OSD display that comes on after a channel has been changed uses a
different font that is set somewhere other than
Utilities/Setup->Setup->TV Settings->Playback->On Screen display->OSD font
Is there another table in the database that has additional program
information? Or another font setting I should be looking at?
Any advice or information would be much appreciated.
