I guess you missed the correct "setting" which fixes that bug: You
bought a second DVB card.

_VDR_ crashes when starting a timer while mplayer-Plugin is running.
That's because vdr had to close the device to let mplayer open it. When
the recording starts, vdr tries to open the device but fails:
-> emergency restart -> close mplayer-Plugin -> quit mplayer.

I always thought of rewriting the plugin to write the video data
directly to the device instead of letting mplayer do it. I already had
parts of the code in the recoder-tools. Now I bought a second card and
the problem is gone, so is my ambition to write this code. :-(

So long,
