This time delay leads to the get timeout of the async network
read ringbuffer. I don't think that it's related to the format of
the input data (mp2/mp3).

I'm not absolutely sure, but I guess that the problem is caused
by a combination of (probably low) data delivery rate of the DAB
server and VDR's own ringbuffer control (which effectively
requires that the buffer is atleast 1/3 full).

I don't know which side effects it would cause, if the ringbuffer
control is changed. A work around could be, to change the timeout
used by the mp3 plugin.
In network.c around line 210, change SetTimeout(1000,1000) into
