The AF9005 cames from a company called afatek and is a DVB-T demodulator. But 
nobody wasn't able to write a driver for this IC and also the vendor seems to 
has no intrest on linux.

The MT2060 is a silicon tuner and is well supported by linuxtv. 

So if somebody will write a driver for the AF9005, there is a chance to get 
your stick running, but this can takes some time... if somebody would start. 

So maybe you should look for another device which is better supported. A list 
is in the Wiki. 

Kind regards,
