However, this would make jumping a lot more difficult.
The color keys are already in use during replay - and I really don't see how using the color keys would be any more intuitive than using the number keys. > Or some mini-onscreen menu?

Any volunteers? The only way this could be made "intuitive" is probably by using a remote control that has dedicated keys for these functions (and making them definable in VDR, but it's already prepared for that - see keys.h). Personally I don't find the key mapping that unintuitive. After all, the number keys are unused in replay mode, so why not use them for editing? 2=Cut 4=Move Back 6=Move Forward 7=Jump Back 8=Test 9=Jump Forward 0=Toggle How about using a marker pen and drawing some symbols onto your remote control that indicate these actions?
