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


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

select ONLY these that are marked with the asterisk:

 [*] 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
 [ ]        Philips TDA10045H/TDA10046H DVB-T Support
 [ ]        NXT2002/NXT2004 ATSC Support





DEVICE DRIVERS -> MULTIMEDIA DEVICES -> DIGITAL VIDEO BROADCASTING DEVICES ->

select:

 [*] DVB for linux
 [*] DVB Core support

And we are done with kernel configuration. Now compile and install.
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
