#1999 closed patch (wontfix)

'Info' button brings up menus for editing

Description

A general gripe about the handling of the 'info' button - too many lines which state:

else if (action == "INFO")

edit();

I find this inconsistent with what I'd expect - 'INFO' should provide information (as 'DETAILS' currently does). In almost all cases the 'MENU' button isn't doing much useful (eg skipping back to the root) or is performing exactly the same function as the 'INFO' button.

This patch creates a new 'PROGINFO' button (named from the dialog - I'd probably have named it to reflect its editing function as shown above, but this is stated in the description). 'PROGINFO' defaults to 'I' and carries out the function of 'INFO' in settings where, as above, 'INFO' actually sets up an edit.

The patch maps the 'INFO' button to behave like 'DETAILS' - in fact the two become synonymous but I have not removed 'DETAILS' to avoid breakage.

As the patch defaults 'PROGINFO' to 'I' this will not change the default behaviour of mythtv but allows people to select a setup like mine which was not previously possible.
