Well, you already answered your own question: live viewing is done directly on
the primary device (unless it needs Transfer Mode), and recording is done on
the second device. Being able to view a channel on the primary device doesn't
necessarily mean that the same (or any other channel) can be received on the
second device, since maybe the many channel switches done by the EPG scanner
have irritated the driver so that it needs a relaod.

Maybe because the first restart has "cleared" the driver?

I tried this (even killed VDR with 'kill -9' to prevent it from doing any
cleanup) but the recording was continued just fine. Sure there was a small
glitch at the place where the restart happened, but that's to be expected.
So, I'm afraid there's nothing I can do here since I can't reproduce the
