This would be a dirty ugly hack. There must be some pseudo-recording 
running so VDR does not restart the recording over and over again. And 
then we'll end up with a recording hack that looks like a timer but does 
not block devices and does not write to disk and has no recording folder 
and and and...

The alternative would be to implement a generic task scheduler and make 
timers one special type of schedule. This would get REALLY big.

Cheers,

Udo
