  I can say it is almost 99% supported. The problem is that it seems
that the device sold in Spain has a different device_id than the one
sold in other places (perhaps a different card revision). I have sent
today a patch to fix this, but the easiest way is to edit dvb-usb-ids.h
file and change USB_PID_AVERMEDIA_VOLAR definition from 0xa807 to
0xb808, and recompile.

  This should make your device work.
