So, some more information on the hdpvr driver.  Using ubuntu 9.04, I added a
file called hdpvr.conf to my /etc/modprobe.d/ directory.  In it I added the

options hdpvr default_audio_input=2

Then I did a sudo rmmod hdpvr, followed by a modprobe hdpvr.
A cat of the sys entry:

ken at mythtv:~$ cat /sys/module/hdpvr/parameters/default_audio_input

Interestingly, the default value (if there is no hdpvr.conf file) for this
parameter is a three (3) which is not listed in the HD-PVR wiki.  I haven't
tested this by unplugging the stereo cables yet, but will try this when I
get home tonight.

If all this pans out, I will attempt to update the wiki with this
