Heh, that's a quite long time... but still I'd prefer the picture to
jump rather than audio...

Yes I did. In 1.3.22+0.7.2 combo I have the very first (if I remember
correctly) dvbplayer patch sent to the list.

When I press e.g. ff-rewind, VDR starts to rewind, but the rewind
picture updates do not happen as often as they should (perhaps 3 picture
updates / second). And after few seconds the rewind freezes completely
as if I had pressed pause.

Pressing play at that point does not do anything at first, but after
waiting for some time VDR wakes up again and continues normal playback.

I forgot to pipe VDR output to file, but for xine output see here:

I started vdr, then started xine, went directly to a recording, started
ff-rewind, waited few seconds until it got stuck, waited for some time
(this time vdr didn't wake up, I may have pressed play couple more
times), pressed finally q in xine to quit.
