 The attached patches enable core backend functionality for win32.  With
 these applied, a windows backend can scan channels and record from an
 HDHomeRun, download listings from SchedulesDirect, and transcode
 recordings.  There are still bugs, no doubt, but I have run the port as
 both standalone and slave backends with good results.  There are four

 backend-win32.patch - allows mythtv-setup to detect backend running, fixes
 creation of temp directories, enables mythsystem calls to get exit codes,
 and fixes recording file corruption.

 hdhr-win32.patch - minor updates to allow HDHR support to compile and run
 on win32.

 datadirect-win32.patch - various updates to handle windows command line

 transcode-win32.patch - enable mythtranscode to compile on win32, use
 QFile for file renaming (MinGW's own routines don't seem to handle
 filename extensions > 3 chars), and extend the existing hacks to prevent
 files being open after the transcode finishes.
