I do not know how the plugin does this exactly, but the script user 
svdrpsend.pl to
"inject" epg-data in one of the instances.
Sure I may modify that script to inject it in both instances, but the I 
have to patch
every future release of the script.
Is'nt there a way, maybe an svdrpsend.pl command to tell an instance to 
update the epg-data out of the epg.data-file ?
