Well, I re-read the MANUAL regarding this issue before my posting above ;-)
The resume ID is described excactly as I use it :
"Defines an additional ID that can be used in a multi user
"environment, so that every user has his/her own resume
"files for each recording. The valid range is 0...99, with
"0 resulting in a file named 'resume.vdr', and any other
"value resulting in 'resume.n.vdr'.

ie. it does not define the VDR instance, but the "user instance"...
In practice, I set this to the same 0 value on every VDR, because I want 
to be able to stop a replay on one VDR, and continue viewing it on 
another VDR, starting at the position I stopped it...
