Thanks, I didn't think about looking in that file. The change is very, very 
welcome as it lets me get rid of 50-100 lines of educated guesswork related 
to the month/year for a timer. It was worth upgrading for that little change.

Now, one could of course ask nicely for a similar change to LSTR? There only 
the year is missing, but as some of us store recordings for a long time there 
will be recordings with "wrong" years sooner or later. VDR itself can get 
this info from the raw files, but SVDRP users can't. Of course, for 
recordings this info is mostly only of informational nature, unless one tries 
to figure out the oldest recordings and clean up with DELR.

'Educational' refers to the process, not the object. Although, come to think
of it, some of my teachers could easily have been replaced by a cheeseburger.
