Well basically it is quite simple, but I don't know how well it suites
other drivers than dvb-ttpci/av7110.

I've configured vdr as a service which loads/unloads dvb modules and
starts/stops vdr. When vdr is started also this small monitor script
is started.

Content of monitor script in pseudocode:

put last 30 lines of syslog to tempfile
check for errorlines of tempfile with grep
if errorline found
  service vdr restart
  sleep 30

Currently I have following patterns specified as errorlines:
'dvb-ttpci: StopHWFilter error'
'dvb-ttpci: StartHWFilter error'
'av7110_send_fw_cmd error'
