when you first open the device it tries to access the tuner.

You're not the first one reporting problems with scan and the af9005, 
unfortunately  I couldn't find if is there an error in the driver at the 
time, and I cannot test it now since my stick doesn't work (the 
manufacturer promised me a sample a couple of months ago but I haven't 
received it yet).
*However* the device should work once you have a channels.conf.
When it worked, I used it with vdr and it managed to pull the complete 
channel list from a few seed channels.

There's no released driver yet, but the af9015 is an usb2.0 device, so 
you could use it to get the whole TS or HD channels. You cannot do that 
with the af9005.
