[vdr] Softdevice crashes on channels that are not Stereo

I use an ALC655 onboard codec on a ECS k7 mainboard, it uses the sis7012 
alsa driver, alsa-lib 1.0.10

my start line is:

-P'\softdevice -vo dfb: -ao 
alsa:pcm=spdif#ac3=iec958:AES0=0x2,AES1=0x82,AES2=0x0,AES3=0x2#

dont ask me why I need the AES1= parts, that was the only way I could 
get ac3 passthru to work, but that works great, its just channels that 
are mono, non-ac3 ones.
