I can not help you more than saying that AC3 audio with DVD-plugin and 
VDR-1.3.43 and firmware 2622 works for me.

I use DVD-plugin from CVS and do not set any options.

Here you find CVS version:
:pserver:anonymous at cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/dvdplugin

I believe that AC3 basically works on your system (on TV-channels) ?

Regards Peter
