[vdr] Data stream broken - alternative way to react on this

Now when "ERROR: video data stream broken" occurs VDR performs emergency
exit. This is frustrating when you don't have a script that
automatically restarts VDR.

Why not try different channel instead. If that works then let user know
that there was a problem with channel XXX that you tried, try again later.

This can be done also in case channel switch works fine but the problem
occurs during viewing. In this case the channel is changed to some other
channel and an error is displayed: there was an error with data stream,
try again later.

What do you think?
