I don't own the datasheet of the TDA10023. I think you must read the configuration of the 
TDA10023 from windows. This can be done with this program 
(http://linuxtv.org/downloads/saa7146dump-0.2.zip). If it is necessary to monitor the 
initialization of the tuner chip, you must use an i2c-monitor. I developed a cheap monitor 
(http://www.vdr-portal.de/board/thread.php?postid=639818#post639818). The costs of the 
parts are less then 10€. To build such a monitor, you should know what a soldering-iron is.
