Indeed it does look very interesting: it's really annoying when things get
repeated several times during the week. Should make life a bit easier
rather than making epgsearch look for really specific timers!
I will try to give it a go.
On another Freeview specific note, I'd love to have my channels renumbered
to their "proper" Freeview numbers. At the moment, I have to go through
and move them about by hand every time something changes! I don't think
there is currently any support for assigning channels a specific number
within vdr (probably not much point with gazillions of satellite channels
but more useful with the handful of terrestrial Freeview ones in the UK).
