The changes since version 1.7.13:
- Fixed handling empty strings in cSource::FromString().
- Assigned the source character 'I' to "IPTV" (suggested by Rolf Ahrenberg).

- Fixed "attempt to drop wrong frame from ring buffer" when skipping +/- one minute
- The new setup option "Folders in timer menu" controls whether the file names in
the timer menu are shown with their full folder path.
