The "pol" comes from the language code in the event's stream component
descriptor, which takes precedence over the pid's language code.

The problem here are the blanks on the "language codes", which
cause tComponent::FromString() to split "A 1" into a language code
of "A" and a description of "1".

First of all, it's a pretty dumb idea of the providers to abuse
the "three letter language codes" for anything else than actual
*language codes*. So the problems are actually caused by the
broadcaster's failure to adhere to the DVB standard.

As a workaround we could change any blanks in the language codes
to underlines. I just have to see where this can be done best...
