Hi There.

I've trying to get xmltv2vdr working.  It's a script that dumps an
xmltv file into vdr's schedule.

I have found that the vdr is causing a problem.  It won't let you
"PUTE" anything.  Not sure what this means, but xmltv2vdr issues the
following commands:

---
mick at ubuntu:~$ /build/xmltv2vdr-1.0.7/xmltv2vdr.pl -s -v -x
/home/mick/TV.xml -c /build/xmltv2vdr-1.0.7/channels.conf
CLRE
...
PUTE
C T-12803-1104-1025 Nine Digital;Nine Network
E 65490 1183559400 19800 0
T Wimbledon 2007
S Day 9
D Info Not Available
e
c
.

I've tried to follow this manually and recieve error 554

Can anyone help resolve what this error means?  I'm not sure where to
start.  Where would vdr be attempting to write to?

I've tried checking /var/log/messages; but over it's not spitting out
any errors.  This is a snipped of the log the above manual "pute"
