Hhm, when I start replaying an external file (of resolution 352x240) and 
hit the blue button (which stops replaying) I get the following output 
on console:

SetPlayMode: 5
vdr-xine: external connecting ...
vdr-xine: external connected!
osd: (0, 0)-(352, 240)
SetPlayMode: 0

Do you get "SetPlayMode: 0"?

Are you able to open VDR's main menu and stop replaying there?
