Revision #?

If you could also provide the backend log and logging options that would be helpful.

It looks like the backend was trying to print out a descriptor which wouldn't normally be printed out.

Backend log: (A bit to much of it maybe?)

How can I check revision? I pulled it at Mon Oct 17 18:08:52 CEST 2011 according to config.log?

Fixes #10107. Segfault on bogus RegistrationDescriptor?.

The HD-PVR outputs a Registration Descriptor with a reported length of 8 bytes rather than 4, this causes the descriptor IsValid?() to be false but we weren't checking for this in a couple places we should have been leading to a segfault later on.

Refs #10107. Pass through the HD-PVR RegistrationDescriptor?.

We probably shouldn't mark this as a valid descriptor. But until I've done some more investication this should keep the on disk format for HD-PVR recordings unchanged...
