You're using a very special situation here, as xineliboutput is IMHO the only output device that can promote itself to be 'the' output device at runtime. VDR itself has not much to do with this switching, and doesn't know in advance how many of its devices suddenly may or may not be the output device. Keeping multiple configurations for OSD persistently would break a lot (including plugins), and will probably have lots of issues. (I already can imagine OSD size depending on DVB driver load order...) Its probably a lot easier to solve this at the output side within xineliboutput. xineliboutput could easily backup the OSD parameters when replacing the primary device, set his own parameters, and set them back when disconnecting. Probably needs some care to make sure that parameters get restored in any case, but solvable.
