As far I can check on Astra 19.2 E, French stations in other packets use latin-1
as well, but properly declare western charset by having the first byte of all
texts equal to 0x05. I.e. those would work fine with or without the workaroud.

So the question is, if there's any French DVB-S/C/T packet using ISO-6937. If
so, it will display garbage, but this must be happening with VLC-1.0.1 as well.

Eventually, we could check SDT for well-known standard ignorants, and switch to
latin-1 if we detected one. I.e. if pD->i_service_provider_name is CSAT, ...

   With kind regards,
