VDR:s automatic channel update while recording is very annoying and
it's breaking few seconds of the recording.
Some channels (like YLE in Finland) changes audio language for

change in channel information, stops recording, retunes to channel
and starts recording again.
This way there is always missing few seconds from the start of the
recording. But on the other hand, this feature is a must. I like new
channels to be added and information changed.
But retuning on such minor issue (and breaking recording) is bad.

second mp2) couldn't vdr add it to stream "on the fly" and not cutting
