There is a small problem with the image_convert.sh script.  If an image exists 
but it is not yet in cache, VDR will throw up a threading error while the image 
is converted.  Perhaps we can use an "echo ... |at now" for the conversion so 
vdr is not held up while the processing is taking place?

Best Regards,
