This would be very important, indeed, but maybe Klaus sees this 
different. A patch would be also OK for a while, unfortunately I 
couldn't patch VDR with UTF-8 support until now (not even that 1.3.24 
version, maybe due to other patches). I'd like to contribute to vdradmin 
in this respect, too (I actually have a littel patch working here, but 
only for displaying romanian EPG data correctly in vdradmin). I think 
I'd have to rework this when VDR finally will support UTF-8.

You could use snews://snews.gmane.org in your newsreader (I'm using 
Thunderbird on Windows and Linux) to search, read and post to the VDR 
ML, it's replicated there really in sync - matter of minutes - and then 
you might want to turn off email delivery from the ML itself as you 
could use the newsreader for everything)...
