Raw XML character entities dispayed in IceTV data
« on: February 12, 2015, 05:39:08 PM »
On the Beyonwiz T3, raw XML character entities are being displayed in program information in the EPG, and are being used in recording names.

I first noticed this in the title of "The House That 100K Built" (7TWO, Fridays 21:30), which shows in the IceTV guide as:  "The House That £100K Built".

There are a number of instances of similar things that I've extracted from my IceTV EPG cache:
Quote

It looks like they're mostly opening/closing single quotes (also being misused as apostrophe). Sometimes there are mixed quotation marks being used, as in " ‘bellota' ".

If the IceTV feed for the T3 isn't XML (I don't know whether it is), shouldn't these be being transliterated appropriately?
