Hm, so you have an ADV7175 based one currently?  Sorry, I don't think that 
helps - again, as far as I know, the WSS stuff only works with ADV7170 based 
cards.  The patched adv717x driver never even tries to set the WSS mode for 
any other DXR3/H+'s.  I don't have any others than a couple of ADV7170 based 
cards so I can't test with anything else.  It could be useful to ask on 
dxr3-devel or dxr3-plugin lists if someone can help out more.

There are no module parameters that affect WSS.  Programs using the driver set 
the desired WSS mode themselves.  The patched em8300setup program can be used 
for this too if you want to try out something.
