VDR insists on tuning a channel when started. So that's how it's supposed to
be. Just keep the second instance running all of the time.

For some (historical?) reasons VTP uses priority 1 to attach its receiver. The
other client most likely uses priority 0, so it is not allowed to switch
channels. Please change the following line in streamdev's server/connectionVTP.c:

 m_LiveStreamer = new cStreamdevLiveStreamer(1);

into

 m_LiveStreamer = new cStreamdevLiveStreamer(0);

No, that's ok. The assumed value 1 is fine. Should be fixed though to get rid
of the message. 

Cheers,
