Yes, devices with three or more inputs would be really troublesome
this way.  An alternative would be to have separate modules parameters
per modulation type.  Instead of dvb_pll taking an input parameter, it
could, for example, take qam_input and vsb_input parameters.  That
could work as long as the number of modulation types doesn't grow much
more.

I will, but it take a few to serveral days.
