I think there's a bug with uncompressed audio recording. The
symptom is, when I record with my plextor go7007, using 48000
uncompressed audio, the sound quality is dreadful and in fact the
video comes out as 44100. Here's a patch (I think, but see
disclaimer below):

         VERBOSE(VB_IMPORTANT, "NVR: Error, unknown audio codec");

I'm not sure that works, because I'm unable to compile at the
moment (my debian unstable hates itself because of the C++ ABI
transition); but there it goes anyway...
