A bit old, but might work or hold some clues - http://www.iecl.univ-lorraine.fr/~Olivi ... debian.php

Thanks for this, but I can't found the driver -> H830_LinuxDrv_x*_V1.0.28-beta_OEM.tar.gz there and all over the Google too. :/

I did some searching with little results. I suggest trying one of the later versions of a live distro such as ubuntu or others and boot the live system, see if the device is detected and supported. If so, you could then grab the drivers/firmware from that live system. Perhaps even try a live HTPC system.

Hi,

I upgraded to Stretch with clean install but can't use any TV-app with my tuner yet.

Thanks for this, but I already knew this before, but there isn't any driver for Linux there: AVerTV Hybrid Volar HD H830. :(

What about this one?

Or their FAQ
Are Linux drivers supported?
Contact us and provide your Linux and kernel versions. We will provide you with further information.

I send them messages twice but their answers me were always this: Sorry, we don't support Linux...

"/lib/modules/4.9.0-4-amd64/source/drivers/media/dvb" -> I don't have this.

Is a properly stupid place to look for kernel sources, I don't know of any distro that puts them there. As usual for proprietary software. :roll:
You could either link your kernel headers/source there, something like: ln -s /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r) /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/source, or fix the makefile for that driver to look in a sane location.
The latter is preferred if you plan on recompiling this for kernel updates without hassle... Though it's a third party driver, so there will always be some screwup to deal with.
