yes i've tested it several times.
I've tracked down the problem a little bit. Data is sent to the plugin
but the replay thread doesn't start because ScanPayOfPS1 fails.

I've commented out these two lines:
        case 0x0b:
        //  if ((uint_16)dvb != AC3magic)
        //      break;
and now it works.

I think it's the nonlinear bit. My receiver switches to DD,
shows the correct stream information but i get no sound.
It's like i've pressed the mute button.
