Yes, that fixes the problem !!  :-)

Could you please describe the function of the epg timeout setting in current
vdr versions?

My manual says:
EPG scan timeout = 5   The time (in hours) of user inactivity after which
the DVB card in a single card system starts scanning channels to keep the
EPG up-to-date. A value of '0' completely turns off scanning on both single
and multiple card systems.

Does this mean, that a vdr, which starts every day and runs for shorter than
one hour, will never get EPG data ?
My vdr often runs for only 20 min. a day when it records the "Tagesschau". I
never noticed missing EPG data.

When I manually start an EPG scan, the picture goes black. What happens when
I switch back to the channel I was watching befor? Is this breaking off the
EPG scan?
