The AVerMedia AVerTV Hybrid+FM Cardbus (E506R) is a hybrid DVB-T Cardbus device from AVerMedia. On kernel 2.6.32.21, analog and DVB-T work. DVB-T requires a firmware and still shows random, relatively small, corruptions. On 2.6.38, there are no corruptions. As far as I can tell, it's working perfectly! I've now been using it for a while (using kernel 3.2.0-rc7) and found no problems.
