Hi,

as I don’t want to waste energy my vdr (video disc recorder) & fileserver (and jbidwatcher sniper) sleeps (s2ram) while not used (when no export is mounted and noone is using the vdr and no recording is running).

To be able to record oncoming tv-program vdr checks it’s timers before going to sleep and uses acpi-wakeup to be up and running a few minutes before the next recording starts.

As this pc also runs jbidwatcher it would be really nice to be able get the time and date for the next upcoming snipeevent (or better the next upcoming snipe-event where it is still possible to win cause my max bid is lower than the actual bid) via shellscript from jbidwatcher.

Is there any way to do this?

I searched the faq and the forum but could not find anything about such a feature.

Many thanks in advance,
Norbert
