Description

Hi,

it would be great if you could add an additional category under Stream -> Filter for EPG Data.

There are a lot of providers and broadcaster who (to be polite) don't do a great job with the EPG Data, i've seen things like html and xml inside EIT EPG, (literally) empty entries, as well as >15h long "Channel Off Air" entries (instead of none so tvh/kodi can recognize them). The latter is especially annoying as the pr0n-channels only send for a few hours, so "Blue Hustler" is always at the top of the EPG List :-(

I could see several variants on how to do this:

1) add a simple regex-style filter like i.e the CA Stream Filter, to IGNORE something like
the channel-of-air-fillers

2) add a more complex sed-style filter to modify Text and/or content type

3) I've also noticed, that there are some sort of filter files for OpenTV in data/conf/epggrab/opentv/, does this do something similar? I think (well hope), most mistakes/annoyances will be more or less static...
