Use TPE2 for 'compilation artist' in mythmusic

Description

ID3 tags have no specific field for a 'compilation artist' for mix albums. MythTV defaults to using field TPE4 (remixed by) for such data. Winamp, WMP, and iTunes use field TPE2 (band). This patch simply adds a secondary check for TPE2 if it finds TPE4 to be empty.

(In [20932]) If we fail to find a TPE4 (Remixed by) frame in the ID3 tag then look for TPE2 (Band) instead. This allows us to identify compilation artists for files tagged by a number of additional applications. Patch from Raymond Wagner. Closes #6567
