Yes, and it seems to be a XVMC problem since you said it works with XV
and software decode?
The bug was previously hidden because the recorder was "limited", but
that's not a long term solution. If you haven't already done so, please
try and get some logs and more info on what's wrong with XvMC and open a
bug for it.
For a quick workaround, you can try activating "hw decoder" for your DVB
card. As a side effect (besides using different demux settings) that
should limit your recordings to just one audio stream again...
