First because i have 4 Videovolumes (check if there is a link, kill the
original file etc.pp.). 
Second i like it to kill recordings during recordings and then i don't want
the kill process to start (like VDR is doing it, it only tries to delete
recordings during a recording when there is not enough space for the current
recording) because to excessive fileoperations sometimes brings errors into
my recordings.
