I belive that is exactly only what this patch does, it changes the
positions on the screen for the ST-NG theme I think (it's been a while I
admit).

So if VDR is told that the red button performs the job of the red
button, then everything is ok.

To recap, the problem I had with VDR that caused me to write this patch,
was:

My Remote control had 2 buttons different from where VDR expected the
buttons to be. E.g. VDR wants Red Yellow Green Blue, but my remote
control was Red Yellow Blue Green.

So in the end, this patch works for you and does what you want? Or is
your remote layed out as VDR expects it?
