There was some discussion on the mailing list last week about it - see
thread entitled "Some nice features from VDR".  Apparently there has
been some work on it in the past but no-one can find the patches :-(

It would be a most useful feature IMHO (I have two tuners and there
are still times when there is stuff I can't record!)
