Maybe the tuner is behind an i2c gate that is closed at the time of 
attach / detection?

tda18271 driver will refuse to attach to the driver if the ID register 
does not contain a valid value.  The ID register is a single byte.

if ID_REGISTER & 0x7F == 3 then
    TDA18271c1
else if ID_REGISTER & 0x7F == 4 then
    TDA18271c2
else
    INVALID

I suggest disabling the ability to close the i2c gate -- force it to 
stay always open.  That should help you to determine whether or not the 
i2c gate is the cause of this problem.
