No, the title should be "House" and the subtitle should be the name of the
episode, like "DNR".

The "Del 11 av 23 säsong 2010" is just a made up string which doesn't mean
anything for the purposes of a metadata lookup.  Obviously it means
something to the guide author/local reader, but it's not a convention used
by any metadata lookup or source.
