PREFACE

The Avermedia 777 is a budget pci DVB-T Card. You can get one for about 65 euros.
You must know that Avermedia777 features a Philips saa7134 and Zarlink MT352 demodulator.

For make this card work, you need at last a vanilla kernel 2.6.17rc3. First we will see how to configure our kernel for the avermedia 777:

KERNEL CONFIGURATION

DEVICE DRIVERS -> I2C ->

select:

 [*] I2C Support
 [*] I2C Device Interface

DEVICE DRIVERS -> I2C -> I2C Algorithms

 [*] I2C bit-banging interfaces

DEVICE DRIVERS -> MULTIMEDIA DEVICES ->

select:

 [*] Video For Linux

and then go into VIDEO FOR LINUX

DEVICE DRIVERS -> MULTIMEDIA DEVICES -> VIDEO FOR LINUX ->

 [*] Philips SAA7134 support
 [*]   Philips SAA7134 DMA audio support
 [*]   DVB/ATSC Support for saa7134 based TV cards
 [ ]      Build all supported frontends for saa7134 based TV cards
 [*]      Zarlink MT352 DVB-T Support

You must select these components in the kernel configuration if you want your avermedia777 to work. You can compile-in kernel (marked as asterisk) or as Modules (typing M). Some people may think that if they compile in-kernel these components, in particular the saa7134, they won't be able to specify parameters. That's wrong
