heuristic fixup for finnish dvb-c program guide classifying most tv-series as movies

Finnish DVB-C program guide (tested only with Welho) seems to classify most series as Movie/movie, with nothing in the EIT data to separate them from actual movies.

A heuristic fixup for this is reclassifying everything shorter then 1 hour 15 minutes to be a series or tvshow. This will catch most things correctly, but there will be errors.

The attached patch will classify these as Series/series, if kFixFI is active. The classification is probably controversial, and perhaps this should be a generic feature somehow, but it does the job for me personally.

(In [23973]) EITFixup: heuristic fixup for short events marked as category type "movie"

RTL and finish channels have events for tvshows/series marked as movies. There is unfortunately no other indication in the description so we use the time as heuristic. Only event longer than 75 minutes are considered to be movies. All other events are classified as tvshows. This makes the canned movie search useable on those channels. Fixes #8216, Refs #6844
