I have been trying to figure a way to implement this on my own, but I 
have yet to have any success. Could someone hint how this could be 
achieved? I suspect that if I pause replay, VDR will keep on running 
"subtitles thread" (or however it is done) normally, and that's why the 
subtitle that was present when the replay was paused will disappear when 
it's timeout is reached. What I have in mind is that the "subtitle 
thread" should inspect whether the replay has been paused before 
clearing the subtitles, but how could that be done? Any help?
