Non-existing date format oldDateFormat is used

In programinfo.cpp oldDateFormat is used at a couple of places.

QString oldDateFormat = gContext->GetSetting("OldDateFormat", "M/d/yyyy");

This doesn't exist in the database or in the settings, thus always using "M/d/yyyy" which is a date format not used Sweden (or the rest of EU i think).

When grepping the source I also found references to oldDateFormat in tv_play.cpp and mainserver.cpp.

Is there any reason for using this non-existing format? In programinfo.cpp it's a simple matter of using dateFormat instead, which is used on other places in that file.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

(In [7624]) Removed all references to "oldDateFormat". This was used in places where the year was needed such as originalairdate but not all "DateFormat?" choices include the year. Therefore, the user's chosen "DateFormat?" is used in these places but if the year isn't present in the format, " yyyy" is appended. Also, "M/d/yyyy" has been added as a "DateFormat?" choice.

Closes #535
