Would it be possible to somewhat generate nfo file automatically with 
each recording? I know vdrnfofs which do it on-the-fly and I imagine 
such file could be generated automatically (optionally) with each 
recording. It seems very easy, because such nfo contains only title and 
The idea after it is that vdrnfofs doesn't allow editing of nfo, while 
such nfo generated automatically by VDR could be freely editable. And 
also it would be possible to download fanart etc to recording directory.
I know VNSI and that it works well with XBMC (allows for quite good 
scraping) but I would prefer offline metadata.
There are times when I work on VDR switching it off and then recordings 
are unavailable for XBMC. If hardware brokes - VDR even doesn't start 
complaining for lack of hardware. And I can't fine tune my nfo file when 
scraper do something ot fully or wrong.
Maybe it's idea for new plugin?
