[vdr] Missing sync-words in latest HDTV recordings from ProSieben

as some of you know, German ProSieben channel is broadcasting movies in 
MPEG2-HDTV (1920x1080i) - this weekend "Man in Black 2".

Unfortunately, the last two transmissions ("Panic Room", "Der Anschlag") 
were either faulty or VDR still has some packaging problems.

The first transmission was "Spiderman", and this stream had just one AC3 
track and makes no problems when demuxing with ProjectX.

But when trying to demux "Panic Room" and "Der Anschlag", which was 
broadcast with AC3 and MP2 audio, ProjectX often/sometimes outputs: 
"Missing sync-words at..." and inserts AC3 frames - see an german 
extract of the "Panic Room" demux log at 
http://www.vdrportal.de/board/thread.php?threadid=32097&sid= in the 
first posting e.g. at the 5th, the 6th and the 9th minute of the 
recording (please don´t follow the thread because it has nothing to do 
with this posting).

So: Is there a bug in the transmission, a bug in ProjectX or a bug in 
VDR? Is there anyone who has no audio drops playing back Panic Room at 
minute 5, 6 or 9 with xine or any other player?

With kind regards
