Thank you for testing the patch!  Could you elaborate a little, please?
Did you toggle the flag by pressing the Power key (after setting
PowerSuspend=yes in Setup/Miscellanous), or did you toggle the flag
directly in the Setup/Miscellanous screen?

Note that in the Setup/Miscellanous screen, the change does not take
effect immediately, but only after you have confirmed the settings by
pressing the OK button.

I would expect the suspend flag to work when viewing recordings.
Did you test it?  The picture should freeze, like in pause mode,
and maybe go black after a while, in case the firmware on your
card features some "end of stream timeout", like the vdr-softdevice
plugin does.

I am not sure how full-featured cards handle live playback
(transfer mode).  If the live MPEG stream is not routed via
cDevice::Action() and cTransfer, I'm afraid that suspending
live playback on full-featured cards is beyond my skills.

Yes.  Good idea.
