[mythtv-users] Query for the scheduled recording

You _do_ need a separate app to write to the CMOS (nvram-wakeup for example). However, nvram-wakeup does not know what time to set the WakeUp time to. It gets that as one of the command line argument.

Here is the sequence of evens (devs, if I am wrong correct me):
1. mythbackend starts in 'user' mode (after a manual start)
2. mythfrontend connects to the backend
3. mythfrontend disconnects from the backend
4. if no recordings are currently going and no recordings are schedule within a predefined period, the backend decides it is idle and starts the idle countdown
5. when the idle countdown is done, the backend calls nvram-wakeup (or whatever program the user specified) and then shutsdown

If either 2 or 3 do not happen, the backend will _never_ decide it is idle and it will never shut down automatically.
