I think the epg-search plugin already provides a similar autotimer 
functionality but I never used this yet.

I use autotimeredit plugin to do this from VDR and it works.
But I also had some problems using timers from vdradmin-am.
Could be some format or access right problem between vdradmin and vdr.
My vdr runs as root at the timer.conf is always created by VDR owned by 
So I guess there are same access problems for my configuration
