#11861 closed Bug Report - General (fixed)

director info is hardcoded into the description textarea in the OSD

When the theme uses the description textarea in the program_info window in osd.xml, MythTV should display just the description. However, MythTV displays both the director and the description, formatted as:

Directed By: Director Name. Description

As a result, the themer cannot display just the description by itself. If the description textarea produced only the description, the themer could display just the description by itself. Or, if desired, the themer could achieve MythTV's current behavior by using the <template> tag as <template>Directed By: %DIRECTOR%. %DESCRIPTION%</template>.

The current behavior is implemented in the ProgramInfo? constructor for a video in libs/libmyth/programinfo.cpp. It affects the OSD for videos, not recordings. It doesn't affect the Video Library screens.

In 79fe451581f84ee91563efdc5412c7fdb98fc30d/mythtv:

Remove the hardcoded director string in Description field of ProgramInfo? and allow it to be templated instead. VIDEOS ONLY for now.
