You could create a new directory to serve your media to kodi. Only
use a utf-8 environment when creating entries in it. Fill it with
hard links to your existing media files.

Doesn't work when trying to move, copy, delete movies.

You'll have to explain why not.

Well, the operation would be done on the symlinks, the file would
still be there and no disk space saved. I would have to repeat the
delete operation on the "actual" file.

I was thinking of hard links rather than symlinks. Saving disk space is
not an objective is it? I agree that deletions would not unlink the
original entry. If that was an issue then I would revert to my original
suggestion - change the entire system to Unicode (i.e. delete the
original directory).

I prefer living with it. Too much hassle.

Kodi displays them correct, it is the file browsers when I want to
organize the disk who don't, and then I have to work on the real files,
not links. Yes, disk space is an objective when organizing the disk(s).

So I admit there is no solution, and live with it.
