Unicode issue

Dear All,
I'm getting some data from internet radio through a media server which supports TuneIn service, but some characters are coming back on my language ( not English ) and do not appear as expected on my touch panel ( they appear as symbols ) although I have selected fonts that support my language.

Below you can see how how they appear on N2S notifications (lines 457,458,465, and 466)

Can I make any kind of conversion?

Any ideas please?

    Don't know what you have done at this moment, but have you read the uncode section in the help?
    just asking.

    yes, I have read it...
    supposing that these characters are on UTF-8 format and should be converted to ASCII, I tried the below:

    data_event[vdvMCS1] //media server
    {
    string:
    {
    stack_var char iData[500];
    local_var char iUTF8[500];
    local_var char iASCII[500];

                iData = data.text;
    
                if (find_string(iData,'ReportState Player_A MetaData4=',1))
                        {
                                remove_string(iData,'=',1);
                                                    iUTF8   = wc_decode(iData,WC_FORMAT_UTF8,1);  //Line 387
                                                iASCII = wc_encode(iUTF8,WC_FORMAT_ASCII,1);    / /Line 388
                        }
        }
    

    }

    The above cannot be compiled:

    yes I have read it...

    supposing that these characters are in UTF-8 format and should be converted to ASCII ones, I tried the below:

    data_event[vdvMCS1]
    {

    local_var char iUTF8[500];

                if (find_string(iData,'ReportState Player_A MetaData4=',1))
                        {
                                remove_string(iData,'=',1);
                                iUTF8   = wc_decode(iData,WC_FORMAT_UTF8,1); //Line 387
                                iASCII = wc_encode(iUTF8,WC_FORMAT_ASCII,1);   //Line 388
                        }
        }

    Seems like Greek encoded as UTF-8:

    https://utf8-chartable.de/unicode-utf8-table.pl?start=768

    The dimension mismatch probably comes from using a 'char' instead of a 'widechar' for iUTF8
    Also presume you have set the editor and compiler options for unicode in the preferences?

    yes, this is Greek UTF-8 and should be converted to ASCII.

    On regards to dimension mismatch I have used both 'char; and 'widechar' with no success.

    Also, editor and compiler options have been set for unicode in the preferences
