    Enchancing data in the NextPVR XML API's

    Currently the data obtained from the http xml interface is not rich compared to the NEWA JSON interface which basically provides as much of the EPG record as it can. I think as a minimum the following changes should be considered

    1) method=channel.listings

    - add season and episode numbers
    - add movie year
    - separate subtitle field I will use this to clean description

    2) method=recording.list

    - include genre
    - include movie year
    - currently I regex the subtitle for S##E## probably need to keep that for new versions.

    Ok thanks it doesn't have to be version specific as the xml is typically parsed for parameters. By v5 I am hoping to use a JSON interface anyway perhaps that can be the richer version.

    Edit: this will give you an idea of where Kodi will use the data

    In the meantime what about a quick fix to prepend S##E## to the Subtitleescription logic you have today. Using the Kodi guide for I would like to see this information.
