MythPlayer: Fix a Live TV channel change deadlock.

This recognises that the decoder loop effectively has 3 different states
- running, partially paused and completely paused. The partial pause
state still allows the playback thread to decode a single frame on
demand, seek and perform position map syncs. Allowing these while the
decoder is changing adds various complications - hence add a new member
state variable, totalDecoderPause, that ensures the decoder loop does
nothing other than check its own pause state when completely paused.

Aside from fixing a deadlock on channel changes, this should also
speedup decoder changes under certain situations and probably prevents a
couple of even more obscure bugs (e.g. if a seek is triggered at the
same time as a channel change).
