#994 closed defect (invalid)

incorrect usage of type "char"

Reported by: cardoe@… Owned by: danielk
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.20
Component: mythtv Version: head
Severity: medium Keywords: PPC
Cc: Ticket locked: no


While x86 automatically sets type "char" to "signed char", other ARCHes such as PPC set it to "unsigned char". So there's a data consistency problem when passing in negative values when using type "char". I changed the types to "signed char", to clear up the problem on all ARCHes.

(In [8565]) Closes #994.

This fixes a compiler warning on PPC platform for a DVB function. This does not effect the code on x86[-64] platforms.

Cardoe, can you look at this again? It looks like the fix for PPC broke DVB scanning on x86 systems.
