[vdr] Playing .avi .mpg files from VDR-Xine

I've been using the mplayer-plugin + xineplayer to play .avi files from 
within VDR, but it's frustrating not being able to pause, rewind or 
fast-forward the clip from the remote.

I'm sure there must be a way to do this, to pass IR commands to xineplayer - 
has anyone got this working??
