Thanks Sergei

My mistake - I'd not set the Seconds value in the BIOS.  Set that, and now 
nvram-wakeup works fine - apart from the time being wrong (daylight saving, 
so the system time is an hour behind the actual time)

How do I now integrate it with VDR?  The WIKI isn't very useful! 
http://www.linuxtv.org/vdrwiki/index.php/Nvram_wakeup#Installation

[root at media ~]# nvram-wakeup --directisa

All values are displayed as they are stored in the nvram/rtc.
(and do not correspond necessarily to the system date/time)

WakeUp  : Enabled (0xBF)
Day     : 10 (0x0A)
Hour    : 21 (0x15)
Minute  : 45 (0x2D)
Second  : 10 (0x0A)
Checksum: 0x16EE
