Check the cx24116.c inkernel driver, see the set_frontend callback. 
You'll see how it queries a dtv_property_cache held in the frontend.

This is the best place to begin.

Let me know if you have any other questions. If you do plan to port the 
drivers, I suggest you create another thread with an appropriate subject 
"porting TT3200 to S2API" or something similar, if you want people to 
comment and help.
