[vdr] Re: How to do a (full) channel scan within VDR?

If you donīt have all available channels/transponders in the

VDR 1.3.12 - I have a dual card system so I donīt have this problem.
When you have a single budget card system and use vdr-xine then transfer
mode is active all the time and no complete epgscan can happen even it
is started from the epg setup with the scan button (VDR will just scan
the current transponder).
Any other possibilities to find new channels on a one-card-system?
Isn't it that VDR drops transfer mode to do a complete epg scan if there
has been a long time of user inactivity?
Anyway, replaying a recording and pausing it will release the single
device from transfer mode and VDR will start an epg scan after 60 seconds.
Be aware that due to the paused recording VDR will not shut down as it
would do when transfer mode is active.
I'm just thinking about adding a similar feature to vdr-xine: when xine
is not connected to vdr-xine, vdr-xine will play the NO SIGNAL recording
and pause it to release it's transfer mode receiver device. Just on
connect by xine, vdr-xine will stop playing it's recording and live TV
will continue just as it is currently happening all the time. But it
should not hinder VDR to shut down due to user inactivity. At least this
issue should be solved before such a feature can be implemented.
