SageTV7.xml updates - version changes

As I was taking a look at doing some more Gemstone 2 development I did a compare of the SageTV7.xml file on Github that is part of and the one I have stored that I previously based Gemstone 2 work on and there are MANY changes.... this is good as that is progress.

However, SageTV7.xml reports the SAME version "2015101301" in both the old xml and the latest xml so those changing the xml are not changing the internal version.... perhaps they didn't know it was there!

As far as I know there are 3 changes required in the STV for versions...

AddGlobalContext( "STVversionText", "October 13, 2015" )
AddGlobalContext( "ThisSTVSetVersionNum", "2015101301" )
STVVersion [=""]

As developers we will need to ensure we make those changes each time the file is updated on GitHub unless there are other suggestions to change this process.

If someone else doesn't make a change in the next while I will make the change based on the last commit time stamp perhaps and create a PR so the file version is more current/accurate.

Looks like it should be...
AddGlobalContext( "STVversionText", "September 22, 2016" )
AddGlobalContext( "ThisSTVSetVersionNum", "2016092201" )
STVVersion [=""]

I was completely unaware of this. I will keep this in mind if I ever need to make future changes to the STV as I suspect of late I was the biggest offender.

I don't think there is a newer discussion for STV editing, and I'm in the middle of a few tweaks, so...

Regarding this part of
* STVVersion [=""]
* This should start with MAJOR_VERSION.MINOR_VERSION.MICRO_VERSION in sage/
* The last number should only be incremented in tandem with the last two digits of ThisSTVSetVersionNum.
What I did back when I edited the STV was make sure the major.minor.micro version matched the latest SageTV release. Then the last digit was simply incremented for changes within that release. It doesn't really match the last 2 digits of ThisSTVSetVersionNum & is actually independent of that variable.

I'll update the file to reflect that.

SageTV Open Source v9 is available.
- Read the SageTV FAQ. Older PDF User's Guides mostly still apply: SageTV V7.0 & SageTV Studio v7.1.
- Hauppauge remote help: 1) Basics/Extending it 2) Replace it 3) Use it w/o needing focus
