Hello,

as I can't live anymore without master-timer, I would like to know if
the change in vdr-1.3.38 breaks master-timer support ?

And by the way, on 11 Dec 2005, Olaf Titz wrote on this ml a patch :

It should allow a force to save the EPG, I have done lots of test to try
to really force it, but without success, for example like this :

Kill vdr
rm -f /video0/epg.data
run vdr
zap a lots under vdr such that EPG gets full
touch -r /bin/bash /video0/epg.data
sleep 60
ls -al /video0/epg.data still reports "0" as size...

Thank you very much,
