The problem is that there is no TV channels with AC3 sounds that I can 
verify with. But the same DVD can be played back on my DVD player which is 
connected to my A/V receivers coaxial input.

The problem is that vdr quits when I've specified the -a option and I try to 
watch a DVD with AC3 sound.

I take that you use the -a option with vdr? May I ask what your vdr start 
command looks like?

Anyway I'll have to try the CVS version of DVD plugin.

Maybe the reason is that my FF card is a dvb-c Technotrend :)
