You are right this is also possible with some external scripts. I did this
before this patch was available.
Nevertheless I dont' like this scripting because it is (in my opinion) much
more error-prone. Besides of this I like it very much that I can do
mit my remote control directly in VDR. If you think of VDR as a livingroom
STB you would would agreen that a "normal" STB-User would not set up
scripts and CRON-jobs.
Think of th WAF! Let's keep things simple! ;-)
