 Using Western Digital TV Live (generation 3) to play recordings made by
 MythTV does not work if the "subtitle" for the recording is empty.
 In this case MythTV sends back the "description" of the recording instead,
 and if this field happens to be longer than 220 characters, WDTV Live will
 not play the recording.

 An old and closed Ticket [ticket:6114] suggests a patch in which only the
 first 128 characters of the description is returned.
 This is not how MythTV is currently implemented though, but the suggestion
 still makes sense for two reasons at least.

 One is that the subtitle column in the recorded table is char(128) so if a
 subtitle was present in the first place then at most 128 chars would be

 Another is that the subtitle/description value is returned in an xml
 element called
 "title" indicating that this is not the place to insert a full description
 of a recording?
