Doesn't anybody have any hints? I tried the -a option but if I try a DVD 
with AC3 sound vdr just exits and restarts on the channel it happend to be 
before trying the DVD play. MP2 audio DVD's works fine.

Oh, and I updated to vdr-1.3.43 with dvd-0.3.7_pre20060204. Also updated 
firmware to 2622.

And the log does not tell much
