Forgot to mention: saa kld does not do tuning at all, tuning is supposed to be
done directly on the iic device (e.g. in the backend, also examples in the
support directory of the saa source).
One possibility to really push the driver beyond analog might be to cont[r]act
Rohit. The saa driver has been used in a commercial product. It's not
something to easily discard, and probably a pretty nice reference
implementation of the traditional 5-CVBS TV card design. I think Rohit just
moved on to another job or something but it may be worth trying. Clearly he's
very competent (and friendly too). I stopped communicating with him a few
months after first starting to integrate saa support into kbtv1, because he
stopped answering. Didn't want to be pushy. BTW, it was Rohit who urged me to
start using SDL, which indeed is fantastic.
