[vdr] Epgsearch does not create timers

I traced the problem down to a missing svdrphosts.conf file.
Timers are now set ok.

Thanks for the clues.

Please check if the SVDRP port in epgsearchs setup is the same as in
VDRs. If not please adjust them and restart VDR. After ~25 seconds the
timers will be created or later when you trigger the update manually.
If this does not solve the problem, please inspect your syslogs when you
trigger the search timer update. You could also activate epgsearchs log
with '-P epgsearch -v 2' and check the file epgsearch.log in the plugins
config directory.
