I think, the main reason, to use vps-support, is to get the full 
recording, even if Gottschalk was just before. So recording at least as 
much as given in the timer entry would help a lot. Perhaps you could set 
  cut marks for start and end of vps-timing, so we wouldn't miss 
anything, even if the events are not sent correctly, but are enabled to 
detect it and advise the broadcaster, to change this.
