    You should maybe try the patches that Matthias Schwarzott made for
non-hybrid variant of the A700 card (the one I use). They implement the add
DVB-S support for that card, and it's running fine now for me.  don't know
if these patches might be also valid for the Hybrid version, but it's
probably worth the try.

    You can find the patches in the Avermedia A700 wiki page of LinuxTV,


    Take the lastest full diff file  from ZZam's repository and apply it
over the current HG tree. If you are unsure about how to proceed, myou
should first take a look at the howto page regarding LinuxTV drivers


Good luck :D
