Nice idea. But I think the idea of having the play button have more 
functionality can be improved further.

For one thing, a feature that I always wanted to implement, but never 
got to, is to remember the last playback across restarts, so you can 
easily stop watching, shut down, restart later, and just hit play to 
continue. Shouldn't be too difficult. Obviously, this would make your 
idea mostly useless.

On a second thought however, VDR could react differently when reaching 
the end of a recording, compared to stopping in the middle. When played 
back to the end, hitting play would show the last 10 seconds again, 
something you probably don't want. Instead, VDR could show the 
recordings folder the recording was in, so you can for example pick the 
next following recording. Or if you really want to see that recording, 
just hit play again.

I really like the idea of starting up VDR, hit play, and either continue 
to watch the last recording I've seen, or to start watching the next 
following recording.

Thoughts on that?
