AVerMedia is a Taiwanese company that produces and sells many different analog and digital TV devices for personal computers.

Some AVerMedia devices are well supported under linux via drivers from the LinuxTV project. AVerMedia, themselves, do not provide direct support for their devices under Linux but for one exception (which itself is a case that is quite limited/constrained in scope). A dialogue with George Chen, AVerMedia Technologies S.L. director, outlines the company's current position in regards to Linux (Spanish).

This vendor is occasionally explicitly Linux friendly, though most support has been written without their input and we cannot count on their help in resolving problems. Most of their cards are well supported under Linux.

Analog Devices

AverMedia's bttv cards are well supported and work out of the box. See Bttv devices (bt848, bt878).

Several of AverMedia's saa713x cards are also well supported. See Saa713x devices.

  • AVerTV DVB-T Express (E568) has a Linux compatible label on the product site (not found anymore) but with licence issues.

3rd Party Drivers

In progress:

Licence issues

Some product pages have a ‘Linux compatible’ label, but the licence in the associated driver that they offer includes the words “The binaries part of AVerMedia Linux Driver is ported from Windows driver and is under some other NDA, so the original source code will not be released.” This suggests that this driver has non-free dependencies, which suggests that this driver will never be included in Linux. Does “is fully supported” in the paragraph above mean “supported so long as you use AVerMedia's out-of-tree driver”, or does it mean “supported in-tree, no need for AVerMedia's own driver” ?
