I found this in the Refman here


Character set issues affect not only data storage, but also communication between client programs and the MySQL server. If you want the client program to communicate with the server using a character set different from the default, you'll need to indicate which one. For example, to use the utf8 Unicode character set, issue this statement after connecting to the server:

SET NAMES 'utf8';

For more information about configuring character sets for application use and character set-related issues in client/server communication, see Section 9.1.5, “Configuring the Character Set and Collation for Applications”, and Section 9.1.4, “Connection Character Sets and Collations”.

Good luck,
