I think it should be VDR that would create the history file. Its VDR that 
creates the file and removes entrys from it, isn't it. It could also be some 
kind of setting for how old data would be stored and possibly for which 
channels. The problem I think would be how to present the history data 
because of possible changes in the EPG data itself. There could be an error 
in the data for many days and in some point it would be corrected and 
possibly corrected again. How should these changes be in the history file 
for it to be easily read. Ofcourse the data may not be corrected at all and 
that would also be seen in the history data.

Another question is that should this data be browseable in OSD or only 
through telnet or ssh (or maybe vdradmin).
