        I recently had a problem with the audio of a live ATSC TV stream 
from VDR to XBMC using vnsi. One of the vnsi developers identified the 
problem a patched vnsi with a work around 
(http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=160951). I am also 
experiencing the same problem with VDR recordings, but this time I was 
told that this had to be fixed at the VDR end of things. If I make a 
recording and check the .ts file with ffmpeg, it shows:

Stream #0:0[0x21]: Video: mpeg2video (Main) ([2][0][0][0] / 0x0002), 
yuv420p, 1920x1080 [SAR 1:1 DAR 16:9], 17700 kb/s, 29.97 fps, 29.97 tbr, 
90k tbn, 59.94 tbc
Stream #0:1[0x24](eng): Audio: mp1 ([4][0][0][0] / 0x0004), 0 channels, s16
Stream #0:2[0x25](fre): Audio: mp3 ([4][0][0][0] / 0x0004), 0 channels, s16

But the streams should be AC3. My channels.conf for this channel looks 
like this:

CBLT-DT Toronto 
HD;(null):509000:M10:A:0:49=2:52=eng at 4,53=es at 4;52=@106,53=@106:0:0:3:0:0:0

Not being an ATSC or mpegts expert...can anyone help?

fedora 18
VDR 2.0.0
XBMC v13 alpha
Hauppauge HVR-1600
