MP3 plugin seem unusable with my setup:

- With DXR3 audio out needs that 3s forward press for every track
- With OSS audio output no volume control available, or have I missed
  some part of setup?

And to finalize unusability, vdr stops working after 5-300 minutes
with mp3 plugin. At some point there comes silence, and remote does
not do anything. Don't really know what is problem, but VDR seems to
be dead. And this happens only with mp3 plugin. 

I am using:
em8300-0.15.0-cvs20050308-patched-20050307      (From cachalot.mine.nu )
vdr-dxr3-0.2.3-pre3-cvs20040913-patched-2005030 (From cachalot.mine.nu )

Anybody having properly working vdr-1.3.23 + dxr3 + vdr-mp3? Switching
to 1.3.23 would be nice since there is timer date-format fixed.
