The first byte of encoded strings should be 0x1f, followed by 1 or 2
indicating which table should be used (one is optimised for titles, the
other for descriptions). "Normal" strings either start with a printable
character for the default character set or a code < 0x20 indicating the
character set. I use eepg too, but I haven't noticed it scrambling
anything (this is probably the first time I've looked at QVC's schedule
