I see no real benefit in complicating file (which stores only channel information) functions with what you've suggested. It just seems like a bunch of unnecessary work inside VDR for something that isn't any more useful than simply putting such info/comments in the README, MANUAL, INSTALLATION, or other appropriate files. _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
