Yep, works for me too, thanks.

However, the patch gave me the creeps, so I dug a little deeper.  I
found that the only thing needed to fix the pink OSD here was to comment
out the "m_users[i] == 0" test in AddColor() and unconditionally setting
m_changed to true there, or to set it to true in GetIndex() when the
color was found.  Both of those were still ugly.  Then I noticed that
the counters in m_users were not being reset to zero when they IMO
should have been, and came up with the attached patch which I think
would be more appropriate.  (Also applied to the vdr-dxr3-0-2 branch in

With this one applied, I no longer get pink OSD after returning from the
MPlayer plugin.  But after "Reset DXR3", the OSD is still momentarily
pink immediately after; things return to normal when the OSD is
hidden/shown again.

Reviews/testing welcome...
