While in calibration mode, the bytes of sub addresses 0x03 thru 0x0f
must be written in one single i2c sequence.

Are you sure that you're using the exact algorithm from the datasheet?
 You're better off storing the values that you plan to write, then
write them all at once in a single transaction.

You might want to take a look at the tda18271 driver recently merged
into the master branch, located under dvb/frontends ...

Perhaps this driver might be enough to bring up the tda18211-- I don't
have the spec for the 18211, so I cannot say that for sure, but I was
under the impression that the tda18211 is exactly a tda18271, but DVB

Let me know if there's anything that I can do to help you.
