Provide option to sort Watch Recordings title list by priority

Description

I have lots of different titles being recorded. However, this becomes difficult to navigate when there are lots of titles. This patch provides an option to sort the titles (when in "Titles Only" view) by recpriority, so that one can easily watch the programs that matter the most. It also provides immediate illustration of the "Auto-Expire by RecPriority?" policy in the frontend GUI without requiring ssh access to do a "mythbackend --printexpire".

Any chance of this making it in to 0.19? or feedback as to why not?

I'm in a similar situation as the reporter, and would love to see this feature added.

In addition to sorting by recording priority, it might be of use to group by recording group.

(In [10052]) In the TV Settings -> Playback, the "View Recordings (Recording Groups)" screen now provides a triggered combo box when the default view is "Titles Only". When the default view is "Titles Only", a secondary combo box appears with the options to sort "Alphabetically" (ignoring English "A|An|The" articles) or "By Recording Priority". If the default view is anything else, there are no other sub-options.

When in the "Watch Recordings" screen, if the default view was configured as "Titles Only, sort by Recording Priority", then the left pane of titles will be sorted by descending Recording Priority ("important" titles listed first).

Also:

  • Clean up use of constants with named enum values.
  • Clean up use of multiple boolean flags with a single "mask" for more concise expressions of flag combinations.

Closes #690
