yes, a first test shows it that works here. Then I've tried to check the 
code and the interaction between epgsearch (timerconflict) and vdr to 
implement a timerconflict warning on 2 different transponders (with 3 
cards available) and stumbled over code I did not have a clue, what it 

To come to an end (remember it's December, the 21st in 2012!), I decided 
to believe in "keep it simple", and just push the priority for live 
recordings and use the pausebutton for important broadcastings.

Thanx Klaus and thanx to everybody for the suggestions - if I decide to 
dig deeper in the "premature" timerconfict warning I will report.

Regards, Ingo
