Further feature request:
At least on single card systems it would be nice to have VDR wakeup e.
g. at 03:01 to do just an EPG scan and shutdown afterwards.


This opens up the discussion about whether VDR should handle external tasks together with timers. I think that VDR should only handle its own tasks.

A timed start could trivially be done by setting a daily timer. More elegant, the shutdown script could check whether the wakeup time is past 3:01 and simply set a different wakeup time. With some reminder it could also realize that the machine did wake up because of the 3:01 tweak, and give special instructions - like starting EPG scan and shutting down (or going inactive) after 10 minutes.

Cheers,

Udo
