im looking for a right way to split long and short name of channel via

The vdr man page say :
Some TV stations provide a way of deriving a "short name" from the
channel name, which can be used in situations where there is not much
space for displaying a  long  name.
If a short name is available for this channel, it follows the full name
and is delimited by a comma, ...

But her in Berlin exist a DVB-T channel with comma inside name 
"94,3 rs2" 

$ svdrpsend.pl lstc | cut -d ':' -f 1 | grep ','
250-4 RTL Television,RTL;RTL World
250-8 Super RTL,S RTL;RTL World
250-201 sunshine live,sunshine;BetaDigital
250-1002 94,3 rs2;MEDIA BROADCAST

Is this a provider mistake ? 
Or could vdr merge long and short channel name by a other character ?
