I've have the same problem on my setup. When it's happend the ring
buffer of streamdev is never filled. I've seen that GetTSPacket(b)
from void cDevice::Action(void) method in VDR/device.c
never return data.

For me it's tunning issue may be a wrong timeout setting.
So I'm using the following patch which give me good result.

If someone is interested to fix  this issue I can provide more info.
