Please check whether the log says that the codeset is "known"
(should be right after VDR's startup message).

You may need to set LANG=en_US.utf8 (without the '-').
Maybe the strings in libsi/si.c should contain the extra '-'s,
not sure what's best.

All I can say is that this works just fine here.

Using such an extra field is not the way to go, because there is no
standard way to fill it in (or is there?).
