To answer to myself - there should be at least any sign that the 
shutdown skript can differentiate between
real timer 30+ min in the future or if this feature kicked in. This is 
not possible at the moment. I would prefer
vdr is not calculating this and just providing the real time of the timer.

Someone who would have a problem with this ? Klaus, can this be changed ?

Kind Regards
