That would be great.

I placed a sample of a file on ftp.mplayerhq.hu:/MPlayer/incoming/vdr
001trunc.vdr along with a readme.txt

This sample contains one MP2 stream only, as it's a DVB-C radio recording.
This is typically what I do, and it shows the behaviour well.

It is probably more common to vdr users to record a tv channel with both video
and audio streams, I could provide such a sample, too (10-20MB).

As I don't want to pollute your samples repositiory, I'm awiting advice first.
