i've been expecting a reply like that.

the info i've found on the AF9013/AF9015 seems to sugest i need to use
certain drivers (which have now been merged into another codebase and thus
unavailable), and a patch applied.
no drivers of the correct checksum, then no patch, and no reliably working

from what i've read on the AF9015, then the issue is with some sort of
hardware signal switch, which gets confused. i guess after a while, mythtv
asks for input1 feed, but the device has it's swtich status confused, and
is swapping the hardware input incorrectly.

£10 used, from ebay - cant moan it doesnt work :)
