Especially for devices like Raspberry Pi it would be very nice to have kind of a "standby" function in VDR,
which detaches active receivers and call an appropriate function on the primary device to suspend and
blank the output. Then resuming VDR would only take a fraction of a second...

Have you set the HDMI frame rate according your video format?

I'm afraid this might take a while, since accessing the decoded image is not that easy, however possible.
But rpihddevice supports the ScaleVideo() method, so in principle it's possible to do it manually.
