[vdr] [PATCH] turn all VDR remotes on/off

Hi,

following your suggestions in the thread "@Klaus, before I start working
on this patch..." I made a patch that disables/enables all remotes in
VDR, only triggerd by a plugin. So the default behaviour remains the
same, and if I load my plugin I can quickly enable/disable the remotes
(I even need to reenable them right before every HITK and disable them
back right after that, therefore the way this was solved in
vdr-externalplayer by destroying/creating the cRemote Objects all the
time didn't suit me, therefore I need such a quick way of turning them
on and off).
I hope this gets included in some form, and maybe vdr-externalplayer can
then too switch to this method of enabling/disabling the remotes. Sorry
that the patch is against 1.3.34, but I think it should apply well even
to 1.3.36.

Lucian

P.S. For those interested, my plugin "vdr-freevo" doesn't do much for
now (I guess it will later), but enabling/disabling the remotes via
SVDRP command "plug freevo rctl on/off", more details to come later
today on the Freevo MLs.
