Found a discussions about this, where the error seemed to come frome the EIT and caused unsupported chars in the database.

Just tried it, and it seemed to work - don't know if the error returns after next recording, but time will tell.
Now thats really obscure. I'm supprised that mysql allows null characters to be passed in a field, unless the field is defined as a blob.

But glab to hear you fixed your problem.
