XF 1.1 Converting from vb - non utf-8

I have this in my vb config.php:

$config['Mysqli']['charset'] = 'greek';

The Server connection collation is utf8_general_ci

And my database tables have greek_general_ci collation.

Now, what would be the way to convert to XenForo and get everything into a utf8 database? Should I just leave the "Force Character Set" empty? make it utf-8 ? Or do I need to do anything special?

Ok going with the Force Character Set empty failed, gave me "???????"

I'm trying with utf-8 now...

EDIT: utf-8 fails as wel, shows "?????" too

Thanks Jake. I went through the same exercise when I did a test convert with IPB and it was a bit more complicated there to get it working.
