[PATCH 3.13.y-ckt 019/121] [media] ds3000: fix LNB supply voltage on Tevii S480 on initialization

From: Kamal Mostafa

3.13.11-ckt12 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Ulrich Eckhardt <uli-lirc@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

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]
