A couple of times I have seen the vdr message
ERROR: video data stream broken
which (a) leads to a vdr exit, and (b) keeps happening every
time I re-launch vdr. As far as I can tell, this occurs if a
scheduled on a channel that is (subsequently) deleted or otherwise
(e.g blocked with the very nice 'taste' plugin).
This can be a real pain to figure out! My solution is to (quickly)
timers submenu and cancel the offending recording before the next
takes 30 seconds to occur). I thought I should mention this in case
gets stuck, or in case somebody has a proper fix.
The relevant code is on line 118 or recorder.c in vdr version 1.3.34.
I have tried to patch it by replacing the call to
but the error is erratic enough that I can't be sure this is a fix.
