I just tried that and it did resume the VPS recording just fine
after restarting VDR.

Maybe there are specific conditions under which this doesn't work?

Having a sanity check for the absolute maximum of a VPS controlled recording
might be a good idea. However, I guess this will have to be yet another
setup parameter. And it should control the maximum overtime, so that it
doesn't matter how long the original scheduled time is. After all, somebody
might want to record a show that runs for more than 8 hours...

I'll see what I can do in version 1.5.
