a fixme still sticks on radio of the HVR1300.

			.audioroute = 2,
			.type	= CX88_VMUX_SVIDEO,
			.vmux	= 2,
			.gpio0	= 0xe780,
			.audioroute = 2,
		/* fixme: Add radio support */
		.mpeg           = CX88_MPEG_DVB | CX88_MPEG_BLACKBIRD,
		.radio = {
			.type   = CX88_RADIO,
			.gpio0	= 0xe780,

Guess audio routing and switching is not clear yet.

The FMD1216ME supports radio over tda9887 and tda7040.

On the FM1216ME and FM1236 MK3 we can take the stereo indication bit
from the PLL chip and switch the tda9887 into FM stereo mode
accordingly. Reading this status information also enables auto scanning
for radio broadcasts for the applications. (v4l2 aware like kradio
should be preferred)

This bit does not work on the hybrid FMD1216ME MK3 and you have to
create a station list manually once, but then stereo radio is fine.

On the later FMD1216MEX, which can also be on that board, Steve
mentioned once that the radio might be slightly different.

That one is currently treated like the FMD1216ME, but would need its own
separate tuner type entry in that case.

We also found hints in tuner specs provided by Steve for ivtv, IIRC,
that an AFC narrowing down looping can be used to take this as kind of
signal strength detection on the tda9887 alternatively for the stereo
bit on the pll. Hartmut was aware of it too, but who likes to work on
analog radio these days ...

It is not implemented yet, if it should be related.
