Just PAL? No NTSC support?

Yes, I would say it should be part of the pipeline.

Correct, in all cases where the adv7180 is used it is directly connected
to the video input connector on a board.

So to support this the adv7180 driver should be modified to add an input pad
so you can connect the decoder. It will be needed at some point anyway once
we add support for connector entities.
