No it won't. VDR still remembers the "shutdown-after-recording"-state with my changes. The only difference here is that the user is told whats going on.
A script never knows if it has to confirm the kPower or not (except if you would parse the timers to see if one is running). So if a script wants to shutdown vdr regardless of its state (i.e. for some maintenance ;) ) then sending kPower via svdrp isn't the right action at all. (one should use "killall -1 vdr" or similar and prevent vdr from starting up again). > Plus, effectively, while > you currently confirm shutdown with "power, ok", you now confirm with > "power, power".

No, you still confirm with Ok, theres just one additional step before. I suggest you try it out - thats easier than describing it here. > > - if a timer is pending within MinEventTimeout ask if he really wants to > > do so but do *not* modify any timers or wakeup times. > > So you *do* want running timers to be disabled, but *not* want to ignore > timers in a few minutes? exactly. If you would alter a timer (or the wakeuptime whats the same in the end) you would have to give a clear warning "Your timers will be shifted by xx minutes. Are you sure". But as i wrote in the previous post, it's not a good idea to alter a timer at all. > > I think it's the task of whoever adopts vdr to a mainboard or box to > > program a valid wakeup time, not the vdr itself. > > Then we can also go back to what it was before, leave all timers alone > and report wakeup in -30 minutes to the shutdown script.

(And it *is* a bug to ask "recording in -x min" instead of "a recording is active") Tim _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
