#3807 closed defect (fixed)

Duplicate entries in Watch Recording screen if Title field blank

As a result of a mythfilldatabase bug detailed in #3806 I get EPG entries with a blank Title field. If I then record a show with a blank Title, I get two identical entries in the Watch Recording screen. Only one recording file is created and playing either results in good playback. Deleting either entry deletes both.

(In [15585]) If the title of a recording is empty (ie, ""), then set the displayed title to _NO_TITLE_ on the Watch Recordings screen. The title is used as a key in several QMaps in PlaybackBox?, and an empty string is used as a special case for All Programs, so this was masking recordings with empty titles. There normally should not be recordings with empty titles, but just in case there is bad data from a grabber or data provider, this mod will let the user see the recordings so they can be editted or deleted.

This closes #3807. I was unable to replicate the issue described in the ticket, but did notice the issue I am fixing here while testing.
