There is an issue if the EPG download is too slow. In that case, the VDR 
watchdog timer may restart VDR to bring back VDR to life. You can try to 
increase the watchdog timeout value.
VDRAdmin-AM can also read the epg data directly from the /video/epg.data 
file, avoiding the lengthly and slow SVDRP download.
