If you want to use ac3 (Dolby Digital) with VDR, you have these 3 possibilities:

The AC3overDVB-Patch for VDR allows the use of AC3, also known as Dolby Digital, via the digital S/PDIF output of an FF-DVB-card. Both, electrical and optical outputs, are using the same protocol and have therefore exactly the same sound quality. But the optical output allows electrical separation between your computer and ac3 Receiver. Therefore you can avoid grounding problems and disturbances in video and analog audio channels. If you have both possibilities prefer the optical Toslink. For output of digital audio VDR uses the AV7111 chips on the dvb card. This chip can only deal with PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) data, therefore encapsulated ac3has to be used. Mostly, but not all, DD Receivers can handle this data format. This list tells you wether a particular DD receiver can handle this or not.

The same restriction is valid if you use the special firmware for DVB card.
