Moin,
strange, here are some example messages that I send myself per email:

       VDR-Test-Cellar(SDA2):  01:43  VDSB
       VDR-Test-Cellar(SDA2):  01:43  VDSB
       VDR-Test-Cellar(SDA2):  01:42  VDSB

       VDR-Test-Cellar(SDA2):  22:26  Start 2013-04-26 22.26 Have I Got 
News for You
       VDR-Test-Cellar(SDA2):  21:58  Start 2013-04-26 21.58 The Genius

       VDR-Test-Cellar(SDA2):  21:56  Start 2013-04-26 21.56 Ben Earl
       VDR-Test-Cellar(SDA2):  21:55  VDSB
       VDR-Test-Cellar(SDA2):  18:38  Up
       VDR-Test-Cellar(SDA2):  07:40  Going down

At 21:55 there is a single VDSB  depsite the fact that no recording is 
running. Then all is OK till 01:41
that recording triggers the VDSB and they continue until the recording 
end time is reached. So its this
continual repeated VDSB that I want to catch if possible.

The single one at the start is what stops me activating the emergency 
exit in VDR.

Cheers Brian
