yes i'm considering using streamdev, and something like 'curl -m
$maxtime -o /dev/null url'.

most of the time we're tuned to a bbc or itv channel.
I'd like to use master-time to automatically records my soap shows
even if i'm in front of the tv.
Main problem is that itv & bbc only broadcast now/next epg and i have
to tune to one channel of the transponders regularly.
(i could also import external epg into vdr)
