I think i asked Klaus about that sometime.
Guess it just wasn't important. :-)

I've always "scan-channels"-d manually for nearly 5 years.
But you just made me change that script to do the 'touch' after zapping 
though the channels, so that i don't have to do that manually anymore.

Thank you for saving me a few seconds per day. :-)

I can't believe that in five years that idea never came to my mind. :-)

A grep for epg.data should quickly unravel where VDR looks if the 10 
minutes are over.
