I see, what was the error?

Ahh, I think we should use the Gen3 names as I find them overall an
improvement over the Gen2 ones.

It would be handle in the same was as the multiple endpoints in port@1.

For the Gen2 none media graph enabled mode this could be handled with
the S_INPUT ioctl. For this feature to be merged however I it needs to
be possible to select input both in Gen2 and Gen3 I'm afraid. I'm hoping
to one day breakout the non MC part of this driver into a new one and
mark it as deprecated and switch to the MC code paths for Gen2.
