IMHO the alert function should work based on the time-since-boot clock,
not relative to the calendar clock. The watchdog did not fire on my
machine while I was playing with the clock.
However, there are some other clock-dependent things in VDR that are not
designed to handle larger clock jumps. Usually, clock jumps should be
just a few seconds, and only after starting VDR.
You should investigate what causes the clock to jump 4 minutes. If your
PC clock is THAT bad, its probably worth dumping the mainboard - you do
want recordings in time, do you?
If this is due to different clocks on transponders, you should restrict
the clock sync to a single transponder. (settings -> EPG)
