Mmm, i found the summary-field quite useful, is there an equivalent to this 
function? (i'am using the patch pressing 0 shows all EPG-entries with the 
same name of that timer)

BTW - i always wondered why only timers created by "external tools" contained 
that information. I use master-timer to set the timers and after it completes 
i go quickly through the timers it created, read the summary and decide to 
delete or not. (A "deepblack" command in the timer-menu would still be great, 
same way i can enact user-defined commands on recordings ;-).

The copying to the info is ok, but i could only see that information until the 
recording is actually done, not before, am i right?
