Maybe that remark is off topic but...
The following issues shall be addressed in the new tuner api :
- There must be a way to try several tuners detections as
one single USB IDs ( or PCI ? ) can correspond to several
devices with different tuners.
- Some tuners needs additional calibration data stored in
EEPROM, there is a chicken-and-egg problem in the current
implementation between the detection of the tuner and
getting additional parameters for the tuner calibration (
and the EEPROM is not always on the same I2C sub-bus as the
Tuner chip )
