Since the new CTF system can have triggers in multiple channels, it
is indeed neccessary to distinguish the different channels by their
name. So 'trigger' is not enough, but you need eventtype 'UPT001'. In
your code sample the element cfg.trialdef.trigger is not used by
trialfun_general. What is missing is the time before and after the
See below for some sample code on a comparable dataset (275 channel
system, Munster). In this dataset there are events in the 'UPPT001'

%%%%%%%% also usefull is the following

cfg.trialdef.eventtype = '?'
the following events were found in the datafile

You can also read the help of read_fcdc_event and do
event = read_fcdc_event(cfg.dataset)
and look into detail in the events.
