I have the same problem (still using an older version of VDR, tho).
VDR does delete the contents of the directory, but it doesn't
always delete the primary directory below 'video'. In your example
you (or in my case me ;o)) still have

/video/nano/Die_Welt_von_morgen/

(being empty) left over. If it's a re-occuring timer,
that is still active, this makes sense, but if there are
no further events occuring later, VDR should also
delete the directories

'Die_Welt_von_morgen' and 'nano'

I haven't been able to find out when or why this occurs.
All I know is that it doesn't always work. I.e. sometimes
VDR DOES indeed delete the above two directories as
would be correct.

It's only a small bug and since I 'PUTTY' around a lot
from my Windows PC it's not a biggy to delete the
empty folders ;o))

Regards,
Reinhard
