I see, you're completly rewriting my roadmap ;-)

thought about it, but what will happen, if user makes a change to channels 
while autosort is in thread? That cries for inconsistency.
I'd prefer catching a signal from vdr if a channel changes or is added and 
then do a single loop just for this channel.
Together with a 'reload config' and 'complete run now' -button this could 
be the best solution

that needs a fuzzy-factor by some Hz. But what do you wanna reach with that?
