In the log line

   Mar  8 20:45:30 vdr2 vdr: [7017] ERROR: video data stream broken

locate the number between the [...] (here [7017]) and search backwards for
a line that contains "tid=7017":

   Mar  8 18:11:18 vdr2 vdr: [7017] recording thread started (pid=2803, tid=7017, prio=high)

Right before that line you should see the information about the timer
and device used for this recording.
