While playback, the current patch waits beyond these 3 hours. (Without, too)

You can shut down while playback, you just have to confirm it. And if 
you don't confirm it, VDR will shut down 5 minutes after the playback ends.

(the current behavior is to ignore the power key while playback, and 
then shut down unexpectedly at end of playback)
