Trying to model this as 1 tuner really does not work well, as they have 2 completely separate frequency bands they handle, as well as different properties (the FM part usually is stereo capable, the AM part is not). It is important to realize here that usually the AM/FM tuners are part of 1 chip, and often have only 1 frequency register which is used in both AM/FM modes. IOW it more or less is one tuner, but with 2 modes, and from a V4L2 API pov these modes are best modeled as 2 tuners. This is at least true for the radio-cadet card and the tea575x, which are the only 2 AM capable radio devices we currently know about.For DVB API we changed just opposite direction - from multi-frontend to single-frontend. I think one device per one standard is good choice.If I understand Hans correctly, he suggests to use two tuners on a *single* radio device node, much like a single video device nodes can have multiple video inputs. So I think you agree with Hans, and so do I.
OK, then I was misunderstanding it. Unfortunately I have no enough V4L2 API experience to comment that :i
