I'm not confident the tuner config for this board is correct. The
HVR-1200 is much closer to the HVR-1250 as opposed to the HVR-1500,
and IIRC it didn't have an xc3028.

I don't dispute that with the patch in question the composite/s-video
are probably working ok, but I wouldn't recommend accepting this patch
as-is until the tuner is verified for DVB-T and analog (ideally both).

Can you provide the output of dmesg on device load? If it's filled
with a bunch of errors showing xc3028 firmware load failures, that
would be a smoking gun that it doesn't have the xc3028.
