xxv generated a timer (via autotimer) which somehow
got into timers.conf - I suppose xxv writes directly to timers.conf

Then vdr said

Apr 24 20:01:00 server vdr: [28378] ERROR: error in /var/lib/vdr/timers.conf, line 201
Apr 24 20:01:00 server vdr: [28378] max. latency time 0 seconds
Apr 24 20:01:00 server vdr: [28378] exiting

Why does vdr have to exit? Can't it simply ignore errors in timers.conf?

this is the defect timer: Note that it consists of several lines separated by LF.
