Modified Files:
   in mythtv/libs/libmythtv:
        mpegrecorder.cpp mpegrecorder.h tv_rec.cpp 
Log Message:

Modified mpegrecorder used for recording from ivtv compatible cards to
	also allow "recording" from plain mpeg2 files.  This is for
	DEVELOPMENT/TESTING purposes.  Modified tv_rec.cpp to allow LiveTV
	to function even if a channel class instance is not created such as
	when reading from the afformentioned mpeg2 file.  To use the test
	functionality, setup a MPEG type tuner as you normally would, then
	change the capturecard.videodevice column in the database from
	"/dev/videoX" to "file:/the/full/pathname/to/a/valid/mpeg2/file.mpg".
	Myth will key off the "file:" prefix and will read from the file
	given instead of expecting a v4l2-compatible video device.  The
	mpeg-2 file will be read and processed just as if the data was
	being read from a hardware mpeg2 encoder card.
