 Hi,

 while working on xbmc's myth frontend, i came across problems with the
 utf8 handling of call signs when using GET_NEXT_PROGRAM_INFO.

 in TVRec::GetNextProgram there is two places where callsign is assigned,
 without using QString::fromUtf8(). This is different from how other places
 callsign/chansign are retrieved.

 I assume things like this are stored in UTF8 in the database (as they
 ended up after i scanned in Sweden). Thus the callsign should also have
 fromUtf8 command on it.

 The problem is also visible in mythfrontend, in channel editor during TV
 playback. Just rename a channel inside mythconverg.channel to a utf8
 encoded name, and you will see the problem.
