A problem I have run into before is not that a channel is down, though
that also happens, but that a tuner is down. I've had tuner crashes, but
vdr just stayed with that tuner/chanel and recorded nothing. I currently
have 5 ATA tuners. 2 Dual tuner cards and a single.


Didn't VDR report a "video data stream broken" and perform a restart?

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.

It doesn't matter whether there is only one or multiple recordings.
Whenever a "video data stream broken" occurs, VDR performs an immediate
"emergency exit" (unless you turned that off, but then you're on
your own). So if a tuner doesn't deliver any more data, VDR restarts
and reloads the driver (provided you use a properly set up "runvdr"
script).
