AverTV offer a "linux driver" on their website. It contains RPMs with the
/etc/udev/devices/dvb/... device nodes and the following modules:

/lib/modules/2.6.11-1.1369_FC4/kernel/drivers/media/video/mt352.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.11-1.1369_FC4/kernel/drivers/media/video/saa7134/saa713x.ko

There is an install script that installs the rpm and insmod the
modules AverMedia
consider to be relevant. No doubt this approach is going to fail on any
linux box not running the expected distro and kernel version.

in the AVerMedia install script one can read:
auto_insmod()
{
       rmmod saa7134     1> /dev/null 2> /dev/null
       modprobe dvb-core 1> /dev/null 2> /dev/null
       modprobe i2c-core 1> /dev/null 2> /dev/null

       modprobe videodev 1> /dev/null 2> /dev/null

 modprobe mk352 1> /dev/null 2> /dev/null # note the spelling mistake !!

       modprobe saa713x  1> /dev/null 2> /dev/null

       dialog --title "Install" --backtitle "AVerMedia Device Driver" \

 --msgbox "The driver is installed.\nYou might reboot your system to enjoy
it!!" 12 60

}

I tried the following:
rmmod saa7134
modprobe saa7134-dvb
modprobe mt352

$ scandvb /usr/share/dvb-apps/dvb-t/uk-CrystalPalace
scanning /usr/share/dvb-apps/dvb-t/uk-CrystalPalace

using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'

main:1882: FATAL: failed to open '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0': 19 No such
device
