Hi,

VDR-UI uses mono to play the stream. It is impossible for the moment to 
switch from one channel to another without going back to VDR-UI. I can 
imagine a workaround that consists of using a playlist instead of a 
stream URL. But direct channel selection will still not be possible 
(example: switching from channel 1 to channel 5 directly).

Having the full frontend will also bring all the plugin flexibility back 
to the NMT :o) And recording/cutting/marks/realtime EPG/time shifting... 
as well
