  • Status changed from new to assigned

The EPG text is marked as "Big-5 subset of ISO 10646" (0x14). But it is actually encoded in big-endian UTF-16. I'm not sure about the interpretation of ETSI EN 300 468 here. In particular, I am not sure if the "Big5 subset" refers to set of characters in Big5 encoded as UCS-2, or the Big5 encoding.

Does this bug affect ALL Taiwanese transponders?

ts: correct Traditional Chinese EPG encoding (fixes #8235)

ETSI EN 300 468 § A.2 assigns the first byte 0x14 value to the "Big5 subset of ISO/IEC 10646". This really means that the character set is Big5, but the encoding is ISO/IEC 10646, a.k.a. Unicode.
