It makes absolutely no sense for a reminder feature to be done via plugin.
This is a very common and basic feature offered in most dvb-c and dvb-s
receivers.  Honestly, I was surprised to find out vdr didn't already have it
implemented because it -is- such a basic function.  Logically I don't see it
anywhere else other than the core code.  I'm not sure why you mention yaepg
as that's just an alternate means to view guide data.  Yaepg has nothing to
do with timer functionality or reminders.  Maybe you could elaborate more on
how you came to your opinion on this?

It was suggested before that people can just set their timers to record for
0 or 1 minute (forgot which it was) so that it doesn't waste harddisk space
but this is a terrible solution as it still creates unneeded/unwanted files
and directories that you would have to go clean up.  There's simply no
reason for that.
