[vdr] Not good behaviour from vdr

I don't know about it restarting. The crashing with loss of signal is
suposed to be a safe guard against creating blank recordings. Seems like a
bad idea to me to. Just delete the bad recordings, don't crash the system.
Here is the fix we've been using:

Locate the line in recorder.c and comment it out.

           esyslog("ERROR: video data stream broken");
-          ShutdownHandler.RequestEmergencyExit();
+ //       ShutdownHandler.RequestEmergencyExit();
