Hhm, though it's strange that I don't get these messages for my 
brother's files although they contain ID3 tags too, but maybe a

That's right.

I've tried to reproduce this issue on my other system but I can't 
reproduce it. My last resort would be to write the stream data which 
input_vdr receives into a file for further debugging.

How are your programming skills? Do you think you can manage this on 
your own?
