That was my original idea. But, after some though (and Stefan's
reluctance), X ressources (which is dedicated to user interaction) and
a daemon (which does its best not to interact with a user) don't
really fit well together.

Hmm.. My computer is the only computer at home. We use it for a lot
other application than only vdr. Setting up a dedicated X server will
waste some ressource. I'll try other solutions first.

I may be mistaken, but the doc mentions something like a 1.2s
delay. Is this true also with the OSD ? I mean, do you get this 1.2s
delay when you press a key on your remote ?
