 From all the channels I've seen so far, the descriptions always matched
the actual PID settings. I assume this is a problem of that particular provider.
In the PID data they announce


while in the EPG data they have

   X 2 03 eng AUDIO STEREO eng
   X 2 03 fra AUDIO STEREO fra

which is just reversed.

You might want to contact your provider and ask them why they are
broadcasting the description in the reverse order.
