Package: vdr
Version: 1.4.4-1
Severity: important

When timers are defined (no matter on if it was set via vdr's osd or via
vdradmin) vdr fails to start or restart with an error message "vdr: [6081]
ERROR: channel T-8468-13057-16394 not defined" (T-xxx-xxxxx-xxxxx changes).

channels.conf looks:


timers.conf looks:

1:T-8468-12289-6:2007-02-22:2058:2155:50:99:nix wie raus ...:

vdr does not start until removing the timer from timers.conf.

Maybe (if it's really a bug, not only a mistake on my part) this could be
fixed for the release of sarge?
