Description

When exporting NCIS: Los Angeles, mythvidexport fails with the comment error ascii.

I am running mythtv version v0.27.3-150-g082d5c1 under mythbuntu.

I am attaching the traceback showing the error in dataheap.py.

I am also including a diff file that I used to fix the error. It is just a hack that ignores the ascii error and dumps that actors name to null in the DB.

Apologies for not creating a true patch file. Not sure how to do so.

I'm bumping this back to a bug report, as just catching and ignoring the exception is not acceptable. We need to be sure to handle it properly. I'll take a look at it tonight.
