You got me - yes.  I also noticed when I played a DVD the 'dolby 2 or 5.1??' 
menu came up.  I tried both, but no sound

oh, ok.  I'm using dvd-0.3.6_b02, is there a newer version?
Sorry for my ignorance - firmware for what??

VDR, vdr-xine, xine & the DVB locked up and couldn't be killed.  I restarted 
X, but ended up rebooting (I have an outstanding IRQ (maybe) problem with 
the DVB drivers, which means I can't rmmod them.

I also have an existing problem FF-ing and REW-ing vdr recordings where VDR 
locks for a few seconds (or completely) which may be complicating things. 
may upgrade from 1.3.23 at some point...
