#8216 closed enhancement (fixed)

EITFixup for false positives in movie detection (RTL group)

I'd like to use the canned movie search but get lots of tvshows and other crap in the search results because they ended up with category movie. This proof of concept switches the category back to tvshow if the duration of the event is less then 90 minutes (including ads)

#6844 is the same topic for finnish DVB-C from Welho (applies to all channels with kFixFI set) over there 75minutes are used as the border (though I've seen 120 minute long tvshows in my data. maybe the solution should not be a one-size-fits-all decision logic)

(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
