Hi,

I noticed a problem with the recording directory of the following timer

9:S19.2E-1-1092-10100:M------:2000:2200:50:99:Musik~DELUXE:

in a situation where the recording gets interrupted by any other 
recording due to higher priority (with vdr-1.4.6):

> Mar 19 20:00:00 Kanotix vdr: [4293] timer 1 (44 2000-2200 'Musik~DELUXE') start
> Mar 19 20:00:04 Kanotix vdr: [4293] record /video0/Musik/DELUXE/_/2007-03-19.20.00.50.99.rec
> Mar 19 20:00:05 Kanotix vdr: [4299] channel 44 (DELUXE MUSIC) event Mon 19.03.2007 19:52-20:11 '(null)' s

as you can see the timers recording directory changes from empty ('_' ) 
to 'Den_Song_für_Ihr_Privatarchiv_kaufen_Si' when the recording is 
resumed on device 2, resulting in 2 single recordings.

Background: the timer is responsible for a recording on DeluxeMusic. 
DeluxeMusic delivers their EPG for the current and the next track. So 
its permanently changing. When the recording is finished it will be 
processed with the deluxe-plugin to extract mp3's. But this only works 
with one consistent recording.

The reason for VDRs behaviour is probably that at the beginning of the 
recording there's no EPG at all, while after the resume there is one.

Any ideas how to avoid the two recordings?

BR,

Christian
