Dreambox Ziggo Channel list update

Today a new version of my code for generating channels lists for your Dreambox. It did had some problems with UTF-8 special characters. That is fixed now. And during the code change, a lot of changes are made. The code is now more readable. Maybe it will be released once...

A few other fixes are that not all the SD channels where replaced with there HD replacement. There are no duplicate channels any more.

Changed the channel boutique name

Made the code cache the external content, so the generating of the files and downloading them should be a bit improved.
