Some years ago vdr was reporting the bad picture types when they
occured. Now i've got no means to detects them on the server (neither
in vdr logs nor in kernel messages)

vdr-sxfe output complains it can't demultiplex the stream, but that
won't work when I'm away and nobody's watching tv. That won't prevent
vdr from using the bad card.

My question still remains :)
I don't mind patching vdr (changing getdevice or something else).
If there's no existing patch or plugin, could you give me some
input on what to change to prevent vdr from using one card for
recordings and epg scans ?
