-O/--override-setting doesn't work for GetSettingOnHost

The overridenSettings map is only checked in MythContext::GetSetting?, not in MythContext::GetSettingOnHost?, so it was impossible to override settings such as UseChromaKeyOSD from the command line. This patch adds that ability.

Note that the key must include the host, for example:

/usr/bin/mythfrontend -O "mythtv UseChromaKeyOSD"=1 -v playback

Status: newclosed

(In [9912]) Allow the -O/--override-setting command to work for MythContext::GetSettingOnHost?(). Bug found by David Asher.

You can use "-O 'hostname setting'=value" or if the hostname being specified is the local machine, then the original method of "-O setting=value" will now also.

Closes #1764 by using a slightly different patch.
