Description

Utilize Schedules Direct metadata if grabber makes it available

Schedules Direct provides some additional metadata that at least one upstream XMLTV grabber now optionally makes available.  Use that metadata if it is provided by the grabber (typically the grabber will need to be told to provide the additional information via a grabber --configure).

In particular, with this patch, the original air date and a new episode flag is available and can be useful to better schedule recordings.

The (real soon now) next XMLTV release will include the new grabber, and one can obtain the upstream master code now.

If the additional metadata information is not available (or not configured in the grabber to be made available) the results are the same as today.

FWIW, I have been using this patch (and the upstream grabber updates) for a couple of months now.

Patch will be attached.
