Subject: [PATCH 3.13 157/259] [media] hdpvr: fix two audio bugs -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Hans Verkuil <>

commit 3445857b22eafb70a6ac258979e955b116bfd2c6 upstream.

When the audio encoding is changed the driver calls hdpvr_set_audio
with the current opt->audio_input value. However, that should have
been opt->audio_input + 1. So changing the audio encoding inadvertently
changes the input as well. This bug has always been there.

The second bug was introduced in kernel 3.10 and that broke the
default_audio_input module option handling: the audio encoding was
never switched to AC3 if default_audio_input was set to 2 (SPDIF input).

In addition, since starting with 3.10 the audio encoding is always set
at the start the first bug now always happens when the driver is loaded.
In the past this bug would only surface if the user would change the
audio encoding after the driver was loaded.

Also fixes a small trivial typo (bufffer -> buffer).
