Seems I found the problem - zvbi is setting the "default region" to 16
(i.e. Western Europe+Turkey) - see src/packet.c
Thus, for any other region this is not suitable...

However, zvbi provides function vbi_teletext_set_default_region() 
which needs to be called from VLC just before vbi_event_handler_register()
in order to set the default region - i.e for Western & Central Europe it 
needs to read:

vbi_teletext_set_default_region( p_sys->p_vbi_dec, 0); 

Probably it's required to define a new config parameter 
"Teletext default region", which needs to be user configurable.

BTW, todays Win32 branch nightly does *not* have the telx module. Probably it's
not enabled in Win32 builds...

      With kind regards,
