 A ported patch for vdr 1.7.31 has been added to the git repository of dynamite:
 https://github.com/flensrocker/vdr-plugin-dynamite

 In the plugin itself I dropped support for older 1.7.x version, so maybe you have to switch to vdr 1.7.31 if possible
to debug this issue.

 Have you any logging from such a situation? dynamite is rather verbose so that may be helpful.
 Besides GetTS-timeout have you also set an idle-timeout?

 Haven't seen such behaviour before, but I don't use this feature... :)
 When implemented I tested it with a DVB-USB-stick which I unplugged when a stream was in progress.
