[mythtv] Support for multiple delivery systems

I've just added a patch for today's master to ticket #13014 that
implements delivery system selection for DVB-tuners that can do DVB-T,
DVB-T2 or DVB-C. This is a first version, for testing only; there is a
lot of debug output and it uses column displayname of database table
capturecard. This allows testing on today's master without the need to
modify the database. The full solution will include a new column
deliverysystem.

N.B. The names presented for the delivery systems have been changed to
be the same as what is used in libdvbv5 and in the dvb-fe-tool; for
instance, DVB-T, DVB-T2 and DVBCAC have been changed to DVBT, DVBT2
and DVBC/ANNEX_A.
N.B. This is a minimal implementation, to keep the size of the patch
small and to make review possible. This is thus not the complete
change from DVBv3 to DVBv5; that will be done in ticket #12638.

I would appreciate feedback on how this solution works on other
people's systems and also how the implementation can be improved so
that I can prepare a full solution to be integrated in master.

Thanks,
Klaas.
