In vdr.c there is this if-clause:

        // Timers and Recordings:
        if (!ISCLIENT() && !Timers.BeingEdited()) {
           // Delete expired timers:

The ISCLIENT() a check if VDR has been started as client or
server (selected from a commandline switch, so I can use the same
binary for both).
Without all my other stuff, you can simply comment of the
complete if-clause.

If anybody is interested in the complete client-server stuff, I
can provide a patch. But it's still work in progress and focused
very much on my needs.

AFAIR the '-' is the continuation mark i.e. for a multiline
