I'm not sure what Darren was getting at in his response to you, but his
attachments have shown that in that case the programs tend have
different descriptions, whereas "continued after the news" type things
tend to have the same description for both parts.

Some sort of interaction would be nice, but it would have to be
implemented separately in vdr and vdradmin (and any other front ends?).
