To keep the WAF up, you might be able to around the problem while you
debug by using an external player.  This *might* get you started (I
haven't tried it):

vlc -intf=dummy --fullscreen file://%s vlc:quit

Random stuff: What physical audio and video output are you using?
What modes (pulse/ALSA)?  I see past reports of DVD audio problems
with a PVR-350.
Good luck, and be sure to report back to this thread when you get it fixed!
