Description

Authors: Andreas Weinberger, Markus Geisler, Helmut Auer

The plugin allows you to use the LCD of Fujitsu-Siemens Activy 300 and also the newer Activys.

With version 1.2.1 it is possible to display the next timer on the LCD of the Activy after the shutdown. The activity_lcdoff.sh provided by HelAu, works only under gen2vdr 1.1. Therefore, below is an example which you can adjust by yourselfes.
