My appologies, instead of xineliboutput I meant vdr-sxfe. i should have re-read
my e-mail before I hit the send button.
vdr-sxfe does know the difference between paused and no signal, in the console
I see a lot of messages like this:
[4499] [input_vdr] vdr_adjust_realtime_speed: assertion failed: this->is_paused
is true !

In my example the pause command is given by vdr-sxfe, but I agree it could
have come from other sources (like the vdr-live plugin)

Best regards,
