#5129 closed defect (fixed)

pid can overrun _pid_status

In DVBRecorder::ProcessAVTSPacket() the array _pid_status acts as a lookup table of PIDs. It has 0x1fff entries (which means the last index is 0x1ffe). 0x1fff is a valid (if null) pid. So if a 0x1fff comes up ProcessAVTSPacket() will try to shove it into _pid_status, which will overrun that array. That function should treat the 0x1fff appropriately instead of overrunning.

(In [17210]) Fixes #5129. Increment the size of the pid tracker tables by one so things don't go boom if someone decides to record the mpeg stuffing stream; I could see myself wanting to do that for debugging purposes, so this is not wholly theoretical.
