I have read that the IVTV driver (for the Hauppage TV tuner cards amoung others) is moving away from its unique ioctls to more standard V4L2 ioctls. The primary agent of change is Hans Verkuil and I think he is working on fleshing out some of the V4L2 APIs to handle things like MPEG-II since the IVTV driver can capture video as a MPEG-II stream.
It may be useful to talk to Hans Verkuil for practical feedback on converting to V4L2 and for other portions of the V4L2 API like the MPEG-II stuff I already mentioned.
