#5420 closed patch (fixed)

Flaw in mythtv/contrib/myth.find_orphans.pl ( patch included )

Description

There is a bug in the contributed myth.find_orphans.pl script that can cause it to incorrectly clear the wrong recordings. A seperate oversight also fails to clear the entry in the previously recoded table to allow the episode to re-record at a later showing.

Attached is a simple patch to add a comparison against the episode description to provide a better match with the flawed recording, and also to remove the relevant entry from the oldrecorded table.
