Only when you don't touch the timer. :-)

Or you can prolong the already running timer every few hours.

But you can't extent a recording indefinetly because there is limit of 255
files into which VDR can record. But under normal circumstances there is at
least enough capacity for recording several days.

Real Programmers consider "what you see is what you get" to be just as
bad a concept in Text Editors as it is in women. No, the Real Programmer
wants a "you asked for it, you got it" text editor -- complicated,
cryptic, powerful, unforgiving, dangerous.
