Some channels don't use the language code the way it is supposed
to be used (namely to specidy the *language*), but rather use
arbitrary stuff like "2ch" or "dd". Since these are not defined
language codes, VDR doesn't recognize these when trying to select
a preferred language. That's why setting no preferred audio
language helps.

Maybe it would help if lots of people wrote to the broadcaster and
complained about this...
