clue how to accomblish this...
There's a define LIVEPRIORITY somewhere in the code. If you would
set it to MAXPRIORITY and recompile, you might get what you need.
Recorders couldn't claim the device used for live viewing becausethey
would have lower priority. Disclaimer: I didn't try it.

Ciao,
   Eike

After a first test: it works. I have three devices - I started two live-recordings and generated a timer within the next 3 minutes watching a fourth transponder. When the timer should kick in nothing happens. So far - so great.

But really nothing happens: no channelswitch - but also no conflict warning or any info about not serving the timer. So this might be the first step in direction to solve this (social ;) ) problem. Perhaps a LIVEPRIORITY of 98 makes sense here, so that you can configure timers that are more important then viewing live TV.

Klaus, I understand that you do not want to introduce more features before 2.0 and I understand that this is a very marginal issue. But if you have an idea, how to get vdr to spill a message about this situation, I would be very glad if you could help us people with too many timers out.

Regards, Ingo
