I second that request. It happens very rarely in my setup but since
I use VDR exclusively for recording (no TV attached), I am not
usually around to hit the OK button.

I have "solved" the problem by having a tiny perl script tail the
vdr logfile. When it sees "CAM: Menu" (or whatever the specific error
message is), the script runs "svdrpsend.pl HITK OK".

It works great but an automated way would of course be preferable.
