I'm interested to see if you still see the 'AFD: codec PCM_DVD has 0 
channels' messages in 0.25 so I think the default verbose setting will 
do. Do you also see the 0 channels messages for any DVD's with AC3 audio 
as well?

If you still see the 0 channels messages then I know what has changed. 
You could try commenting out lines 210 to 213 here 

That check doesn't appear in 0.25 but does in 0.26 and is what is 
causing the codec to fail to init. Exactly how we fix that properly is 
anyone's guess but if it works it points us in the right direction :)
