Patch to reverse sorting of channels in the program guide

DESCRIPTION: This patch reverses the sort order of channels in the EPG and adds the option to the settings UI.

SYNOPSIS: Some users find that sorting channels with the lowest numbered ones at the bottom of the screen is preferred from a UI perspective. In some senses this is more consistent since the UP button then always increases channel number regardless of how channels are being browsed. This is an option on many STB devices (for example Dish Network). An option to enable this is added to a logical place in the EPG settings UI.

TECH DETAILS: This is really quite a trivial patch. When the EPG is populated in fillChannelInfo(), if this setting is enable, instead of adding channel "i" in the loop, we add "channels.size()-i-1", which effectively reverses the sort order. A new configuration setting check box is added with a name of "EPGSortReverse". The default value is 0. This patch is against commit 12593, but I am more than willing to patch against a more recent commit, though you'll see the patch is really quite trivial, minor changes (all the same) to 6 lines, and addition of 19 new lines.

I'd rather not add another setting, but I'll see if this can be implemented without needing one.

(In [15281]) Add a key binding TOGGLEEPGORDER (default is number '0') that will reverse the order of channels in the program guide. The order is remembered when exiting the EPG and will be restored the next time it is used.

Note if you have the 'Allow channel jumping in guide' setting on the default binding will be ignored so you will have to use another key.

Closes #3096.
