       runvdr - starts VDR and reloads the DVB modules in case of errors


       runvdr  is  called by the init-script of vdr. It acts as a watchdog for
       vdr and will reload the dvb-modules and  vdr,  if  vdr  exits  with  an
       exitcode different from 0.

       runvdr  will  call  /usr/bin/vdr  and will pass all commandline-options
       directly to /usr/bin/vdr.

       runvdr needs to be called by root in order to work correct, because  it
       will try to unload/load kernel-modules!
