swedish characters gets scrambled on LCD

Reported by: anonymous henrik.lilljebjorn AT Owned by: Isaac Richards

MythTV from svn (9926) doesn't show the swedish characters åäö correctly on an lcd-display, I don't know if this is specific for my installation or not. LCDProc expects iso8859-1 coding, mythlcdserver was sending something else. The character "ä" gets displayed as "Ã ¤". This is the result of the "ä" utf8 code being wrongly converted from iso8859-1 to utf8. The following patch corrects the issue on my machine, but I don't know if is OK on other machines:
