Its "Exit vdr (SVDRP)". Notice the difference. The command quits the SVDRP connection, not VDR. > HITK power This only triggers the shutdown script. Its then in turn the job of the shutdown script to make sure that VDR terminates, for example by shutting down the computer and let init do the kill of VDR. There's one exception, if there's a status message or status prompt on screen. In that case the key will be interpreted as response to the status line. For example, sending HITK power twice will start and cancel the shutdown. (or confirm an override.) As already said, VDR exits gracefully on a TERM signal. But if you need to set a next wakeup time or don't want to interrupt recordings, you have to go the HITK way. (I know there's the SVDRP NEXT command, but the shutdown wakeup time handles more things than just timers.)
