[PATCH 3.12 100/206] media: ds3000: fix LNB supply voltage on Tevii S480 on initialization

From: Jiri Slaby

From: Ulrich Eckhardt <uli-lirc@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

3.12-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


commit 8c5bcded11cb607b1bb5920de3b9c882136d27db upstream.

The Tevii S480 outputs 18V on startup for the LNB supply voltage and does not
automatically power down. This blocks other receivers connected
to a satellite channel router (EN50494), since the receivers can not send the
required DiSEqC sequences when the Tevii card is connected to a the same SCR.

This patch switches off the LNB supply voltage on initialization of the frontend.

[mchehab@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx: add a comment about why we're explicitly
turning off voltage at device init]
