There is a bug in the broadcast of BBCHD (on Astra 28.2E, this problem doesn't occur on 1W) as the audio descriptor is wrong for the AC3 stream. This doesn't seem to cause problems with any other receiver now apart from VDR. I have mailed the BBC twice, and they say they are going to fix it at their "next technology refresh" as they don't want to be uncompliant with the DVB standards but they haven't done this since my first mail in December so don't expect anything soon. If you turn Dolby Digital off in the VDR DVB menu then it will play only the MPA track and the picture will then work fine in VDR. However, unfortunately this track also comes with audio description which can be pretty annoying if you're not visually impaired! It would be nice to see BBC HD again with VDR - if someone could give some pointers on how we might be able to fix it (see my earlier mail to this list on the subject with more technical details) I would work on a patch for those who are interested. But right now, I don't know where to start (I'm a hacker not a coder).
