Hi Guy!
Your AverTV USB2.0 is a DVB-T tuner, I have one and use it with the 
a800-driver. It works perfect.
When I checked it I used the command 'dvbscan <file with channel frequencies>' 
and redirected it to .tzap/channel.conf (in the mythtv home-directory). Then 
I used tzap <name of one of the channels in channel.conf>. And voilá! I could 
see if I could tune in that channel.
The format of the file with channel frequencies you can see 
in /usr/local/share/dvb/dvb-t/, where you find a lot of different files to 
cities in Europe. Your network company have the frequencies, I found mine on 
their homepage.
Good luck!
