 Live TV: Disable the oldfile ringbuffer optimization for program

 Refs #10490.  Using the LiveTVChain in the frontend ringbuffer to
 control the oldfile flag in the backend ringbuffer is just too tricky
 to get right and too easy to subsequently break, so we disable that
 mechanism completely.  The consequence is that the backend ringbuffer
 may cause a 0.3 second pause waiting for more data at true EOF (but
 buffering on the frontend will probably hide that).  If the oldfile
 optimization during live TV is really needed, it's probably better for
 the backend recorded to control it.
