 I see this when grabbing metadata for Pokémon episodes (notice the accent
 over the 'e').

 The metadata look up with ttvdb.py works fine.  Mythfrontend displays the
 title correctly.  Also coverart and fanart are downloaded and saved to the
 disk (into their respective storage groups).  But they have filenames
 like: "Pok?mon Season 1_coverart.jpg" & "Pok?mon Season 1_fanart.jpg"  The
 'é' character is not saved correctly.  Mythfrontend/mythbackend can not
 find the files when it tries to display them because it is looking for the
 special character.  The files work fine when I open them manually.

 For what it is worth here is how nautilus (gnome file manager) displays
 these file names: "Pok?mon Season 1_coverart.jpg (invalid encoding)".

 The errors in mythfrontend log look like:[[BR]]
