VDR does EIT scanning to transponders in background and this starts up 
your VLC processes as you suspected. However, the downgrading to earlier 
version is not a proper solution as it brings up some other problems. 
The 0.3.0 should be compliant with VDR's API definitions, but I you 
don't likethe background EIT scanning, you can always disable it via 
setup menu or with the following patch (if you want to disable it only 
for plugin sources):
