Details

This gives the option to set a countdown timer for delayed recording with a max timer of 1 week.

While the timer is ticking the remaining time/icon/inverted rtc display is shown in the statusbar depending on the size of the screen.
You may override the timer at any time by pressing the newfile button while in the recording screen and the timer is started/paused by pressing the pause button.

When the countdown has completed, recording will begin with the applied settings if you are already in the recording screen, or the statusbar timer display will flash to indicate that you should enter the recording screen where recording will begin automatically.

For the settings screen I have made a general function that can change any number of integer settings on one screen (set_multi_int()). This could also be used for the setting of the clock/date (or any other multi integer setting). The present clock setting function is not general enough to be used for other purposes.
This task depends upon

New feature:
Repeat recording and menu rejig.

All timer settings (including filesplit etc) are under a menu in the recording settings called Timer options.

Setting "Record repeat every.." you can set a time for a repeated recording eg. set it for 1 hour and a recording will start every hour from when you start the first recording. This needs to be used in conjunction with timesplit option. "Split measure" and "What to do.." are automatically set to 'time' and 'stop' respectively when "Record repeat every.." is set. You need to set a "Split time" that is less than your "Record repeat every.." setting.

So eg.
First set "Record repeat every.." to 20 minutes
then "Split time" to 5 minutes.
Then go into the recording screen and press record

This will result in a 5 minute recording and then a 15 minute pause, then another 5 minute recording and 15 minute pause..etc etc until you stop the recording or pause the timer.

This can also be used in conjunction with the countdown timer to start the first recording at a specific time.

Right, now the repeat timer works properly and it also takes into account any prerecording to keep the recording times correct.
