Hi,

only at a first look.

I have created a patch: IncompletePatchVideoMateT220.rtf that produces this output: dmesgOutput.rtf. Basically all the chipsets are identified, I just can't work out the right way to get them to work together. So I have a number of questions about my patch.

Well done. Start with the most common.

Next could be to look at devices from the same manufacturer.
Also Philips/NXP m$ .inf files can have some hints.

Else, create enough inputs for composite (0-4) and s-video (6-9) and
just test.

I would hang here the same way. The tuner and demod address seem to be
right for sure.

Seems not.

You can consider to derive a gpio_mask from there and set .gpio per
input for what is in the mask. Two pins are, the third and highest is in
off. Only 0-27 are valid.
