Yep, it should work with 1.3.22.  At least I've never seen a crash
with 1.3.22.  The delay problem with MP2 is know but it is not that
easy to fix.  On the other hand: using the direct way of connecting
the S/P-DIF out on J2 of the DVB FF to the S/P-DIF in of the sound
card works flawless, e.g. is in sync.
