[vdr] changes to runvdr for a nexus-s

Here is an example of the changes that I have had to make to runvdr so that my
nexus-s works.  I have added a maximum retry value to runvdr so that vdr will
not keep attempting to start over and over if there is a major problem with
reception.  Also, I have added a minimum runtime (in seconds) that vdr must have
in order to continue attempting to restart after a crash.  For example, if vdr
crashes within 10 seconds and the minimum runtime required is 45 seconds, then
runvdr will consider that VDR has major problems and it will not try to keep
restarting up to the maximum allowed retries.  However, the maximum retry value
can be set to "0" which would tell runvdr to attempt a restart unlimited times
after crashing.

BR.
