imdb results are in ascii mode

Description

Mythvideo only support ascii characters from the results of the search scripts (actually, imdb.pl and allocine.pl). This is bad because there are a lot of languages that need extended characters like accents (àá), umlauts (ü), enye (ñ)...

The solution is to expect data to be only in utf-8. This conversion should be done in the search scripts, although the mythvideo code should also change to get data with the correct encoding. One thing to note is that all fields are wrong except the movierating. This is the only field where non-ascii characters looks good.

Attached is a screenshot of the problem.

It reads in data encoded according to the current locale settings.
