mpeg ("MPEG-1 Systems / MPEG program stream") seems like a bad choice,
but who am I to judge. Perhaps your TV "sort of" copes, but not well.

Would you care to try mpegts?

ffmpeg is not a streaming server for reconnects. At least I think it
can't handle that by itself. You probably need to put something like
ffserver inbetween, but I have very little experience with that, and
will (again) leave the answer to others.
