It happens again today. So I made a quick fix.

Are you sure that your fix will increase the WAF ? I don't know if VDR 
works correctly with a "broken" channels list.

I prefer not to add broken channels.  The patch does not help for 
channels that modify pids to a broken state, but prevents to add broken 
channels.
