To AF9015 module? (seen logs)

Looks like you are trying to do it totally wrong way.
You should not use AF9015 at all because your device has CY7C68013 
(AF9015 is "replaced" by CY7C68013).

- CY7C68013 USB-bridge - driver unknown (USB-protocol used depends 
firmware used by this chip. If we have luck there is used protocol that 
has already driver)
- AF9013 demodulator - driver exists
- TDA18271 tuner - driver exists

Most likely.

There is some help in linuxtv.org wiki.

But here is list of tools I and many other use generally when debugging 
Windows drivers:

USB Snoop
For sniffing USB-data in Windows

For parsing usbsnoop logs and replaying data to device

VMware Workstation & Player
For running Windows in virtual machine. Supports USB2.0.

Transedit MMC
For tuning to frequency & showing stream information

No. This was only changing to new tuner. You have totally different 
device and situation.

If you can take some Windows sniffs, for example one when plug stick and 
other when tuning successfully to channel, I can try to look what kind 
of USB-protocol is used.
