Use system directory separator for PVR lock file path in error message - thoatswold - 03-02-2019

Sometimes the PVR Scheduler doesn't delete the pvr_lock file when it is closed down. Then when I run it again it fails with the following error message:
Code:
ERROR: Quitting - process is already running (C:\Users\<username>\.get_iplayer/pvr_lock)
I should be able to copy the pvr_lock path from the error message, type 'del ' and paste the path, followed by Return to delete the file.

However, the error message wrongly uses the Linux forward slash before 'pvr_lock' when it should be the Windows backslash. So each time this happens I have to edit the delete command manually.

Very minor, I know, but it is irritating. Could this be corrected in the next release, please?
