[vdr] Pausing live video with xineliboutput

  Hi,

Most of my vdr/xineliboutput/vdr-sxfe setup works well, except for 
pausing live tv.  When the pause button is pressed there is quite a long 
pause before the video and audio are stopped - 5 seconds is typical.  
Once paused, pressing Play does nothing, and eventually it looks like 
vdr-sxfe restarts itself and writes messages like this:

Connection to server lost. Reconnecting after two seconds...
Reconnecting...
xine: found input plugin  : VDR (Video Disk Recorder) input plugin
xine: input plugin cannot open MRL [xvdr://192.168.2.33#nocache]
xine: cannot find input plugin for MRL [xvdr://192.168.2.33#nocache]
Error opening xvdr://192.168.2.33
Connection to server lost. Reconnecting after two seconds...
Reconnecting...
xine: found input plugin  : VDR (Video Disk Recorder) input plugin
xine: input plugin cannot open MRL [xvdr://192.168.2.33#nocache]
xine: cannot find input plugin for MRL [xvdr://192.168.2.33#nocache]
Error opening xvdr://192.168.2.33

and eventually goes back to showing the current live broadcast, not 
resuming from where it was paused,  or it will crash  writing this:

xv_set_property: property=0, value=0
input cache plugin disabled
xine: found demuxer plugin: XVDR demux plugin
abort: audio_alsa_out.c:852: ao_alsa_write: Aborting.

vdr itself seems to be running fine - the live recording is started and 
continues to record regardless of the vdr-sxfe client.

Is anyone using vdr-sxfe with alsa and has pausing live tv working?

vdr version 1.7.18, vdr-sxfe command line:

/usr/bin/vdr-sxfe 192.168.2.33 --video=xv 
--post=tvtime:method=Greedy2Frame,enabled=1 --fullscreen --syslog 
--verbose --reconnect >>/tmp/xinelib_log 2>&1


Thanks,

Scott
