Just to keep you informed: Meanwhile I've added audio post plugin 
support to xine and created an audio post plugin vdr_audio which 
replicates the selected channel to the one which is not selected. As a 
result, the selected audio channel is sent to both speakers in contrast 
to the above mentioned muting of a single channel.
