Looking at pvr.hts CTvheadend::GetRecordings it appears it currently sets an image path to the recording's channel icon. Since some xmltv providers supply image URLs for the programme, we should persist that path to the dvr/log and send it on to the clients so they can provide an image for the programme.

I'll take a look in a few days.

ui: Persist image to dvr/log and send to ui. (#4685).

Previously it was only available for upcoming recordings
but now we persist it to the dvr/log so it can be sent
to clients and displayed on recorded programmes.

ui: Prefer to use accessor for de_image. (#4685).

This allows it to also try and get an image from the current EPG
if the entry does not have an associated image.

dvr: Prefer image from current broadcast to persisted image, fixes #4685

A programme in the far future may have generic details and a generic
image. For example, "Oprah is interviewing people." As the programme
nears broadcast date, the programme may then get more specific details
and a more specific image ("Oprah is interviewing Bob").

So we prefer the image from the broadcast to the one currently persisted.
