That problem coincides with my problem of recordings with length 0 and filesize 
of few megabytes. Didn't know that it comes from a crashed tuner.

If I remember right, there was no "video data stream broken" message and after 
enabling the automatic shutdown I realized, that the vdr waits until no 
recording is active before initiating the restart.

So the automatic restart did not really help anything, especially in 
environments, where multiple parallel recordings are most probably to happen.

kind regards
