Every command sequence over SDVO is preceded by an instruction to the
controller as to which function to send the command to. Originally I
tried to reuse the GPIO method of simply sending that switch command
immediately followed by the real message, but I never succeeded in
setting up the SDVO devices in that manner. I suspect what is actually
required is to rebuild the message to include the preceeding bus switch.

However, if you don't have any SDVO devices to experiment with we can
find somebody who does.
