While adopting this patch I found that we need to set the timer's 'event'
pointer to the actual event here, and that the start time should always be
set to the event's start time (even if VPS is not used) in order to keep
the event from getting reassigned to a different one later on.

I have attached a revised version of your patch (against VDR 1.7.30).
Please take a look and let me know whether it is still OK for you.
