It doesn't reload on it's own in case of a crash - so: no - maybe you
could try to check for the pid on a regular base? But this would not
help you in case of the buffer overflow, since the pid remains but
the connection to vdr gets broken.

Hence: best way to do it would be a button on your remote or a hotkey
on your keyboard.

no - I tried cvs version 1.0.3 and 1.0.4 of xineliboutput - I guess it happens
less often in 1.0.4

The second point why I need the script is the volnorm parameter: this adds additional
gain in volume level, but the adjustment only takes place if you start the application.
