The xc3028 is indeed a tuner, the driver module you need for it is the "tuner_xc2028" (note the number is 2028), this also supports the 3028.

For an idea of what you need to do to get this card working, have a look in:
In particular the patch to Add support for the Leadtek Winfast PxDVR 3200 H, this is one that I recently wrote to get the DVB on this card working.

The afa9013 is indeed a demodulator,  however it appears to be currently unsupported.  See this wiki page:

You can create a wiki page at: http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php
To create a page you need to create a log in, then do a search for the page name, (i.e. "AVerMedia AVerTV Hybrid Express Slim") and click create page.  I think there might be pro formers on what the page should look like somewhere...  To get an idea on what you need to type in click edit on another similar page, such as:
The images should be uploaded using the "Upload file" in menu on the left when you are logged in.

Also once you  have created the page update: 
with the link to page and the relevant details, and similar for this one (and others you think are relevant): 

I hope this helps and hopefully soon the AFA9013 will be supported (I'm not involved in the development of this).

Well that is my two bits of advice,
