yes the recording contains AC3:
mplayer can replay the file with ac3
vdr -a 'ac3dec -P' can replay it, too

I've figured out if I replay the file with vdr, the bso(replay) thread 
doesn't start with newer recordings

AC3 replay is done then over the spdif of the dvb-card but my receiver
doesn't support the strange bitformat (AC3 frames wrapped in PCM)
