Hmm, (with this patch) I get "fin" and "2", if i record this a bit 
and watch it, there is "fin" and "sve" in the recording as there 
should be. (and "fin" is finnish and "2" or "sve" is swedish.

Try swaping fin and swe audio pids in channels.conf (so that finnish 
is listed first). Should be temporary solution. :)
