  Description     : VDR Plugin that provides an extended schedules menu

 vdr-plugin-epgsearch can be used as a replacement for the default schedules
 menu entry. It looks like the standard schedules menu, but adds some
 additional functions:
  - Commands for EPG entries with 5 built-in commands like 'show repeats',
    'create search'. One can add own commands for other needs, like adding a
    VDRAdmin auto-timer.
  - Add up to 4 user-defined times to 'now' and 'next' and an optional
    favorites menu
  - Searching the EPG: Create reusable queries, which can also be used as
    'search timers'.
  - Search timers: Search for broadcasts in the background and add a timer
    timer if one matches (similar to VDRAdmin's auto-timers) or simply
    make an announcement about it via OSD
  - Avoid double recordings of the same event
    * timer preview
    * recognition of broken recordings
    * fuzzy event comparison
  - Progress bar in 'What's on now' and 'What's on next'
  - Shift the time displayed by key press, e.g. 'What's on now' + 30 minutes
  - Start menu can be setup between 'Schedule' or 'What's on now'
  - background check for timer conflicts with a timer conflict manager
  - detailed EPG menu (summary) allows jumping to the next/previous event
  - support for extended EPG info for search timers
  - extension of the timer edit menu with a directory item, user defined 
    weekday selection and a subtitle completion.
  - Timer conflict check, informs you over the OSD about conflicts
  - Timer conflict menu, show detailed information about the conflicts and
    let you resolve them 
  - Email notifications about search timer updates and timer conflicts
