Sorry my English.
Probably all have already faced a problem of Russian names and letters
For example it is impossible to use simultaneously both Russian and
German letters in names of files (for example in MPlayer plugin).
I recently have put myself vdr and it at once was not pleasant to me.
So I a disgrace have changed all this.
As fonts all of the different sizes and styles was necessary at the same
time and freetype2 library to vdr to fasten. This is only with ttf fonts
Later the others I shall complete.
Patch it is made for the version 1.3.23
In setup.conf added some parameters for definition of fonts.
FontFix = courbd.ttf
FontFixSize = 16
FontOsd = arialbd.ttf
FontOsdSize = 16
FontSml = verdana.ttf
FontSmlSize = 12
By default fonts are
as FontOsd arialbd.ttf size 16,
FontSml arial.ttf size 12
und FontFix courbd.ttf size 15
These files at least for the first start should lay in config directories.
For each channel in channels.conf it is possible to establish the
character coding, the field is added in the end every line.
By default is ISO8859-15.
Possible variants are listed in: iconv --list
EPG data at reception are converted in UTF-8. So on a disk all (again
created) files and descriptions will be already in UTF-8. I recommend
to remove a file epg.data that data were already normally filled in
