I also think that this would be very helpful for some plugins. Manual
start detection could also include a call to the plugins. A plugin
that did "schedule" an EPG-scan or similar could tell VDR during start
up, that VDR woke up because of this scheduled event set by this
At the moment I use a relatively complex patch that does some
"maintainance" task during the night. If it would be possible to
modify the wakeup-time in a plugin I could re-implement the complete
patch as a plugin.
