What would be nice is something like bool cRecording::IsRadio(). I was 
going to have a go at incorporating the code posted on this thread the 
other day by Reinhard Nissl but haven't got round to it yet.

This could then also be used when determining recording lengths, skipping, 
etc. rather than treating all timings as video.

Having said that, I tried to record a couple of sample bits of a radio 
channel the other day and they were pretty broken.

:(

Do radio recordings still work for other people or have I managed to break 
something?! I used to make quite a few but haven't done so in a while. 
This is vdr-1.5.0 and softdevice cvs.

Cheers,

Laz
