I'm experiencing a strange problem with VDR and Xine plugin. When the system boots and Xine player connects to the vdr-xine socket for the first time, everything is working great. You can navigate OSD with keyboard (I'm using Xine remote) in any OSD display mode, sound works and all channels are available.

However, things start to go wrong if I quit the Xine player and then launch it again and connect to vdr-xine. If any of the blend scaled OSD display modes is configured, no OSD is shown. X11 overlay display mode works. No sound can be heard at all (sound works ok from any other program using Alsa). Xine remote works though, as I can normally switch channels with keyboard. Also picture is ok, just no sound and no OSD in blend scaled OSD modes available.

Restarting VDR doesn't fix this. Neither does unloading and then reloading the DVB card driver modules. You need to power down the system and reboot before everything will work fine again.

Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong here?
