This card is similar to the AVerMedia AVerTV DVB-T 777 (A16AR) and is currently working using the latest driver code from the v4l-dvb repository.

While not yet correctly labeled ('Avermedia Technologies Inc Unknown device'), the tuner functions well. The IR receiver is also detected and functional.
