[PVR] Feature: Make instant recording behavior configurable #9847
This feature has been requested in at least two different forum threads.
Currently, when pressing the "record" button in Live TV OSD, on the remote control or on keyboard a fixed length recording starting "now", ending after the time set as "Instant timer duration" setting value will be scheduled.

This PR implements configurable instant recording behavior.
First, there is a new settings value in PVR->Recording, "Instant recordig action":
Three values are available:
The first two options will immediately start recording without any user interaction, the third option will open a dialog with a couple of choices:
The options currently implemented for the dialog as well as the wording are only a suggestion and can easily be changed.
