    Problems:
    - if more than one “extended event descriptor” is sent to specific event and text begins with control codes with character table the EPGLanguage.text field contains badly concatenated string. There is no problem when there is only one descriptor for event. But when there is more descriptors each next descriptor text is added with control charactes to EPGLanguage.text field.
    - You don’t process item description field (you just skip it). In polish EPG there is info about actors, year etc.

    The item list should not be added to lang.event, if i read correctly this is the name of the event. It think it needs its own field if we are going to implement this.

    I think the patch is still relevant, but my comments on the patch also still stand.

    Found a bug in the extended event descriptor decoding (tswriter epgdecoder.cpp).

    When an EPGLanguage is created the extendedEventComplete property is not initialize (should be set to false).
    This leads to that extended event descriptor decoding somtimes works and somtimes the text is skipped.
