[vdr] VDR 1.7.16 - emergency exit on recording HD shows

Hello,

I'm use VDR on my server with a DVB-S card. I use it to stream TV
channels and record TV shows. Recording works great for SD channels, but
is broken for HD channels.

Whenever I ask it to record a HD TV show, it starts recording (but the
.ts file doesn't grow in size) and after 30 seconds it terminates
unexpectedly. It says the video data stream is broken, but it's actually
fine! There are no problems with watching HD channels streamed from VDR...

I suggest VDR should stop taking care about the stream correctness and
should just start recording. Because until then vdr-streamdev-server and
wget are the only working combo.

Aside from that I don't understand why it terminates completely if it
_thinks_ some bad data arrived. Data errors may happen at any time and
it's not a valid reason for an emergency exit.

This one's an encrypted DVB-S2 channel, I've tried the FTA BBC HD too
and it terminated as well.

The syslog:
