sure, yes.

Unfortunately it doesn't help much:

mythtv at mythtv ~ $ export LC_ALL='de_AT.UTF-8'
mythtv at mythtv ~ $ ./bin/find_orphans.py
Recordings with missing files
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./bin/find_orphans.py", line 224, in <module>
  File "./bin/find_orphans.py", line 164, in main
    printrecs("Recordings with missing files", recs)
  File "./bin/find_orphans.py", line 43, in printrecs
  File "./bin/find_orphans.py", line 35, in pprint
    name = '{0.hostname}: {0.title}'.format(self)
UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xdf' in
position 31: ordinal not in range(128)

This is gentoo linux, maybe I am missing some library or... or ...


Thanks, Stefan
