Hmm, ok, I was mainly thinking of becoming inactive - since this is 
after a certain time has passed, it can only be polled. For lots of 
cases the current patch wont poll this state at all for a long time.

But becoming active again is a different thing of course.

Actually, the key press lets the VDR main loop spin, and directly after 
the key press was handled, there's a call to MainThreadHook, so its not 
that long.

Anyway, I'll think about that.

Cheers,

Udo
