VDR doesn't know that the signal is bad due to stormy weather.
It assumes that something is wrong with the driver and does a restart
because you have a timer recording. If there were no recording timer,
VDR wouldn't do this.

You can disable all the cThread::EmergencyExit() calls if you don't want
this. Maybe I should disable this by default in a future version - and wait
until people start complaining because recordings are broken... ;-)
