[mythtv] [PATCH] Improving TDT EPG in Spain

Hello list,

My name is Unai Uribarri and I'm from Spain. I've been hacking with
mythtv this weekend and, first of all, I want to congratulate the
developers of this project for the quality of the mythtv code.

My first target has been the Electronic Programming Guide of the Digital
Terrestrial Television (DVB), which here in Spain is a bit weird.
Several channels publish the name of the event empty or with a dot [.],
and puts the event name in the subtitle field. Also, there are channels
that like to fill the extended event descriptors with all sort of empty

So I have patched libmythtv to:
a. If the event name is empty or just a dot, replace it with the
b. Instead of ignoring extended events with items, skip the items and
extract the event description which is after them.

The patch is against SVN 0.19-fixes. Is there any chance to get this
patch accepted in that branch?

Good bye.
