If you're just talking about notifications from your script, I imagine that's fairly easy to do.

I've written a bit of code to handle an issue with multiple notifications (the display time isn't honoured). This works by passing the notification requests to a separate thread and sleeping for the right amount of time before displaying the next notification. It would be a very minor change to check that there were no active players (e.g. music or video) before displaying a notification.

However, the above idea has nothing to do with cron so best not discussed in this thread. If the above idea is of interest, start a new thread and I'll share some code.

MythSuspendAlarm: Suspend and wake for next MythTV recording.
BBC Live Football Scores: Football scores notifications.
Random Movie Script: Play random movies from library.
