I would like to get some informations from the current cPlayer.
Just like the PTS of the current running recording or of the current 
Maybe also "time to run of current running recording" or "total Time of 
current running recording"

At the moment I don't have a overview over all functions of vdr.
I think there are two ways to get this informations.

1) create an own cPlayer with the same function the the dvbplayer but 
with one more function to get the informations. Drawback is that I need 
to copy much functions.

2) patch vdr to include my function into the dvbplayer.

I'm not sure which is the best(and maybe fastest) way to implement this 
I prefer a plugin. Maybe there is a way for SVDRP or Custom services 
that I don't know.
