For the HDTVRecorder and DVBRecorder we close their recording session
and open and close a whole new session within the signal monitor. The
idea here is that if things worked 30 seconds ago in the signal monitor
it has a good chance of working in the recorder. Plus we pass the
PAT & PMT tables along via the StreamData instance with caching enabled.
When we set the ATSC Channel, DVB Service or MPEG Program in TVRec
after setting the StreamData on the recorder, it resends the pertinent
table to the listeners, which now includes the recorder.
