I noticed kind of the same problem in 1.4.x. As far as I can remember
VDR crashed not just when a timer started but also when the timer was
about to be completed.
Anyway, I'm not exactly sure how I got rid off it since I've changed a
lot of settings since then, but I think it has something to do with the
DVB setting "Update channels" - even though I couldn't find any correlation
when I checked the sources.
Try setting "Update channels" to "no" and see if VDR still crashes while
using mplayer when a timer starts.
