Hello,

After spending some days trying to compile and compile without any success, my conclusion is: I need some help to make "AVerMedia AVerTV HD Express A918R" works in linux.

What I tried is to tweak 'dvb-usb-ids.h' file so that the A918R card (Id=0x0918) is seen as default AFATECH_AF9015_9015 (Id=0x9015):

/* #define USB_PID_AFATECH_AF9015_9015		0x9015 */
#define USB_PID_AFATECH_AF9015_9015		0x0918

If this works, the conlusion would be that there is no special tweaks necessary for card A918R, which could be then added to files dvb-usb-ids.h and af9015.c files for next updates.

I also tried to add this line to /etc/modprobe.conf:

alias usb:v07CAp0918d*dc*dsc*dp*ic*isc*ip* dvb-usb-af9015

but no luck.

If someone knows how to make some further test which do not require compiling, please advise !

If someone else can propose a 'dvb-usb-af9015.ko' module for test, he is welcome !

Thanks.
