Review of Linux Compatibility

The AverTV Volar HD Pro A835 from AVerMedia is a USB stick with DVB-T tuner. The stick has the USB-ID 07ca:a835

07ca:a835 AVerMedia Technologies, Inc.

and is identical to the Avermedia AverTV A835 Green HD (also has the USB ID 07ca:a835).

The stick is supported by the Linux kernel since version 3.5 thanks to the kernel module af9033, which is loaded automatically:

If the kernel module is not part of the distribution, it can be compiled by hand. At first, the necessary tools for compilation have to be installed. In Ubuntu the package build-essential is needed:

sudo apt-get install build-essential

The driver package can be downloaded from

wget http://xgazza.altervista.org/Linux/DVB/Drivers/AF9035_xgaz_3.0.0.tar.bz2

After unpacking the downloaded file

tar -xjf AF9035_xgaz_3.0.0.tar.bz2

the driver can get compiled:

cd AF9035_xgaz_3.0.0
make
sudo make install

Firmware:

The firmware file dvb-usb-af9035-02.fw is needed in the directory /lib/firmware for the driver. This firmware file can be downloaded from http://xgazza.altervista.org/Linux/DVB/dvb-usb-af9035-02.fw.
If the firmware file is missing in /lib/firmware the initialization of the kernel module fails with the followin log message:

dvb-usb: found a 'AVerMedia AVerTV Volar HD/PRO (A835)' in cold state, will try to load a firmware
dvb-usb: did not find the firmware file. (dvb-usb-af9035-02.fw) Please see linux/Documentation/dvb/ for more details on firmware-problems. (-2)
dvb_usb_af9035: probe of 2-1.2:1.0 failed with error -2
usbcore: registered new interface driver dvb_usb_af9035
