VDR started recording at 22:30, which was the timer's start time.
Then after it had switched to channel 5, the actual running status
of the event was probably set to "not running", so VDR stopped recording.

It would be interesting to see the log entries before and after
these, to be able to tell whether there was any running status
change on channel 5 at all.
