The patch seems to simply bypass the bttv_init_card2() call for the
twinhan.  Any chance to figure where exactly it dies?  Maybe the
bttv_audio_reset() call?

In any way a much simplier approach would be to just add

	if (bttv_tvcards[btv->c.type].no_video)
		return;

to a sensible place in bttv_init_card2(), just before the pll config
should work ok.
