I don't know how VDR work, but I think it will be wise to have a file with
the same filename and ".info" or even ".epg" extension that will have
relevant EPG section for the recorded program including full channel name.
If the recording timer was set manualy, maybe it should include all programs
that lay between start and end of the recording.
