I got an Avermedia AverTV DVB-T USB2.0 (a800) recently. It works fine 
under WindowsXP. Today I tried it under Ubuntu 6.06. 

I downloaded http://www.linuxtv.org/downloads/firmware/dvb-
usb-avertv-a800-02.fw and put it in /lib/firmware on my PC. Then connect 
the box to my PC.

dmesg gave correct information I think. 
[17179592.224000] dvb-usb: found a 'AVerMedia AverTV DVB-T USB 2.0 (A800)' 
in warm state. 
[17179592.224000] dvb-usb: will pass the complete MPEG2 transport stream 
to the software demuxer.

successfully initialized and connected. 
[17179592.224000] usbcore: registered new driver dvb_usb_a800 

lsusb also listed the device correctly. 
Bus 005 Device 003: ID 07ca:a801 AVerMedia Technologies, Inc. 

lsmod shows the drivers 
dvb_usb_a800            5636  0

usbcore               130692  6 

Then I use dvb-apps (scan and szap), however, both failed. I'm sure there 
is signal on the air and the parameters are set correctly. 

Do anybody have any idea? I can provide more information if needed. 

Best Regards,

Kelvin Wang
