I don't like the whole rewrite of PlayVideo/PlayAudio at all. As already 
written in the VDR-1.7.2 topic of VDR portal [1], even playback of PES 
recordings is unstable for me when using the looped PlayVideo functions, 
no matter what fixes were applied. My vote would be to return to the 
simple non-looped version of VDR 1.7.1 and before, where partly written 
buffers timeout after 1s and non-written buffers are rejected instantly.

However, this requires more complex PlayTs**** functions, as they would 
have to check whether PlayVideo/PlayAudio have read some of the buffers, 
and re-offer the rest on next call, while not accepting any more data 
until the whole buffer got accepted by PlayVideo/PlayAudio. (PutTs 
resets the buffer.)
