Nope, sorry - my repository is only for em28xx-based devices, and the
A16D is saa7135-based. I do have, however, a relatively recent copy of
v4l-dvb-experimental, which you can download as a tarball from
http://www.makomk.com/~aidan/v4l-dvb-experimental.tar.bz2 (I don't
have the space to offer it unzipped). I think it may be a revision or
two out of date, but the last log entry is:

changeset:   5886:55d60e988b89
tag:         tip
user:        Markus Rechberger <mrechberger at gmail.com>
date:        Fri Oct 12 01:03:30 2007 +0200
summary:     Aver TV Hybrid A16D add DVB support (received from
Miroslav Bobal bobal at mbfun dot net)

which might be what you're looking for.
