I am currently suffering from events like this:

Jan 28 05:52:45 vdr vdr: [15224] stopping recording due to modification of channel 83

Recording gets heavily fragmented and unviewable.

I suggest that recordings shall not be stopped and restarted except
when things are changed that are neccessary for the recording (which
the TPID is not), and maybe there shall be even more rate limiting on
PID updates for channels with active recordings on.

Thank you.
