Controlling ADV7612 from Linux Host using I2C

We are using EVAL adv7612 adv7511 P board. We would like to use an external Linux Host (like Raspberry Pi or PandaBoard) with I2C interface for controlling the ADV7612 chip. Our main aim is to enable the ADV chip (from Linux host) to receive HDMI input. We are giving HDMI input to ADV chip from a DVB-C set-top box.

I have two questions regarding this:

  • Are there any suitable Linux driver modules that we can insert into the kernel so that ADV chip gets initialized from Linux.  Do the drivers like in this LINK are of any help ?
  • AD also provides AD7612 receiver library source code API (LINK) . Will it be possible to modify and compile this code in Linux Host and use the generated executable to enable HDMI. We have done the same for microchip uC PIC18F45K20 but have little idea on how to modify for a LINUX host.
