There's not much available, sorry.

You can start by taking a look at the PLUGINS.html, then just start with 
a test plugin. The newplugin script will generate one for you.

 From there, its a matter of trying. For some stuff there's help in the 
PLUGINS.html, and for other things the best way is to take a look at 
other plugins that do things you want to do too.

The final source for information are the header files and sources of VDR 
itself. As plugin you have full access to all VDR internals, just as if 
you were part of the core program.

If you need to know more specific things, don't hesitate to ask, you'll 
surely get help.
