I do not know how to insert  the summary into a fake EPG event.
Note that there are two ways to run epg2timers: Some people
(myself included) run it between executions of VDR (so epg2timers
modifies the timers.conf file directly while VDR is not running),
others run it in parallel (maybe even on a different machine) and
use SVDRP to send the new timer entries to a running VDR.
