I m using this card and it is working.
My configuration:  
  Avermedia A700 DVB-S Pro A700 - ubuntu hardy development 64 bit - kernel 2.6.24-14
  Patch : http://dev.gentoo.org/~zzam/dvb/a700_full_20080313.diff

 Two satellite dishes: Turksat 42E and Hotbird 13E. Both working.

Digital TV and audio  work correctly, only signals weak.
Analog video (composite input) works, but i can't get sound from analog input. 
For
digital tv, I m using kaffeine and it works without problems. For
analog part, I use xawtv and tvtime, both shows video, but no sound.
