To clarify:

After looking closer at the audio-menu:

On Eurosport there are two audio PID's "sve" which has swedish on the left
channel and danish on the right and "nor" which has finnish on the left 
and norwegian on the right channel. I have chosen Swedish as my preferred
languaghe and VDR correctly select the audio PID labeled as "sve". That 
PID has
two langughes, and i have to select right or left channel in the VDR 
audio menu
to avoid audio in swedish AND norwegian at the same time.

My problem is that VDR does not seem to save my choice which means that i have
to go into the audio menu and select left channel everytime i want to see
Eurosport. The same applies to Nickelodeon.
