[vdr] Question about SetPlayMode()

Hi all,

at the moment I am working to tight up vdr-plugin-dxr3 and found
something to verify. Is about
cDevice::SetPlayMode with pmExtern_THIS_SHOULD_BE_AVOIDED.
If pmExtern_THIS_SHOULD_BE_AVOIDED is used, a device plugin gives the
control of its device
to e.g. mplayer or xine. In this state it is not possible to call
PlayVideo, etc., as the plugin has no
control about its device.
Can it happen hat vdr or any vdr-plugin calls PlayVideo, etc in this state?
