I'm sorry, I cannot reproduce your issue. It works here as expected, 
with VDR's keyboard remote as well as vdr-xine's remote via xine-ui.

Traditional mode only allows you to stop replaying. There are plans to 
change this, but so far I didn't "want" to find time to emulate mplayers 
output by xineplayer.
