Hi list!

I've a problem to check which recording is currently replayed in VDR. I 
know, that there is a the function 'cStatus::Replaying()', which 
delivers the 'Name' of the recording, but unfortunatly this is only a 
short version and not the full FileName. So there is no (secure) way to 
check which of several recordings which have the same name is actually 
I tried to use 'cReplayControl::LastReplayed()' but I have some problems 
with that and Klaus told me that this is a bad idea to call it out of a 
thread. So he considers changing the API of 'cStatus::Replaying()' and 
'cStatus::Recording()' so it returns the full FileName (Name incl. the 
path to the recording) instead of the Name. He told me that I should ask 
the list if anybody would have a problem with that (plugins, scripts and 
so on) ... so here it is ... what do you all think about that? Any concerns?
