  Recording Type for Sat>IP and HDHomeRun

Recording Profile item Recording Type added for Sat>IP and HDHomeRun tuners.
Previously this was only available for DVB (Hardware DVB Encoders) tuners.

The Recording Type is part of the Recording Profiles.
The Recording Profiles can be configured with mythtv-setup.

The Recording Type item has values "Normal", "TV Only" and "Audio Only".
With value "Normal" all streams that are part of the selected service are recorded.
With value "TV Only" only the video, audio and subtitle streams are recorded.
The other streams that may be present will not be recorded.

The BBC does add MHEG streams that enable interactive television, activated
by a red button on the remote control. These MHEG streams can occupy about 40% of
the total bandwidth. Not recording the MHEG streams by selecting "TV Only" can thus
reduce the size of the BBC recordings with 40% without any loss of video quality.
