Actually, no it's not separated by 0x0D 0x00.

It is separated by null-terminators (0x00). You should keep reading until you come across an empty string, or a double 0x00. Of course, you can always keep reading until you reach the end of the packet length, then removing the last channel (if empty), which works also.
