I get your point. I will provide a solution via our svn server, this or
next day.

#~AT[1] is used as marker / anchor to reidentify a timer by xxv.


I would wish myself in addition a feature on the part of the VDR, which
external programs can provide on vdr timers with additional data fields.
That to however only go if the timer format like e.g. the EPG format is
developed and the VDR here external data permits. 
The vdradmin solution to stores the EventID as bitfield on TIMERID is
similarly dirty.

like this idea for a new timer dataformat
E start point
T title~subtitle
D description
U <- this field could used by vdradmin or xxv with owner data ->
