hello martin,

i tried myself on the vps stuff and was able to implement something that
worked for 1 show only - after that something happened that just crashed
my backend. i droped the idea and just enlarged the pre-post-recording
intervals. (still missing some shows if they're preceeded by some
live-broadcast such as soccer) 
that it is possible has been shown by the vdr folks (well but they also
have multiple dvb-recordings on single transponder which myth does not
have so far - although its a much talked about topic)
