Commenting out the AC3 type like you did is a perfectly good workaround. 
It *should* be possible to record both mpeg & ac3 sound but there can be 
many issues with this. (TS or PS mode? HW decoder mode active for the 
DVB card?) It's also very possible that there are bugs in Myth and/or 
the players but we're trying to tackle the problems as they turn up. 
Please search the list archives (including the dev list); I've written 
some emails about similar stuff the last few days... And I wrote 
yesterday about only recording one track. ;-)
