I have written a patch for making the Power key suspend the output.
Some softdevice users have found it useful, but I've been told that
the patch does not stop playback on full-featured cards.  You can
access the patch here:

I originally made the patch for vdr 1.3.32, and back then it was too late
to change the shutdown behaviour of 1.4.  I hope that the feature will make
it to 1.5 in some form.

Since I've taken the job to re-design the shutdown stuff for 1.5.x, I probably have to take a look into this too.

I'm not sure whether this will be a core feature of VDR, but maybe we can add the needed interfaces so this can be done with a plugin.

I'm not yet sure how exactly the new shutdown code will look like, but I'm quite sure there will be a way to detect whether VDR is currently interactive (some user is watching) or not (unattended start, timer recording, no activity for x hours, power button pressed but not confirmed). Based on that, a plugin could probably take over the output device and suspend it or show a still. Or softdevice itself could react on this.
