Oh yes, that's what i've found, but SetPlayMode() doesn't know when the
client connects to the plugin. So I have to play in both SetPlayMode
(and check if a client is connected) and OnClientConnect/Disconnect.

I just thought I could do that without modifying vdr.
(it seems i can't, but i'd love to read i'm wrong)

I'll propose a new method, it doesn't cost anything to propose :-)
Maybe it could help solving something that hasn't been solved (i
think): http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.vdr/23212
