I don't think VDR should pause in this case. At least I don't want to trust that 
this is always correct. If VDR would support this, then this would even allow 
broadcasters to deny recording at all.

Better idea would be to translate this "log" you have here to a working "marks" 
file for VDR.

Where do you have this log from?

Yours
