I tried the version 0.02 and although it seems to be working fine, I 
have couple of questions. First of all, there are no indication in the 
main menu display about a recording activity, if the recording was 
started by a timer. I looked at the source code and it looks like 
cSkinSoppalusikkaDisplayMenu::SetRecording should do that by adding a 
cTextScroller, but it isn't called at any point. Or am I totally mistaken?

One proposition I'd like to make is that you could somehow get this and 
the femon plugin to work together, so that the femon plugin could offer 
for example information about the aspect ratio of the current program 
which in turn could be added to the program information. Or can that be 
achieved by other means?
