0. Check your kernel

1. Plug in the USB TV Tuner

You can check that it is correctly plug in with lsusb

2. Download the driver for AF9035 dvb-t usb dongle (3.2.x kernel version)

Note that this driver should work with:
– Avermedia AVerTV A835 HD (ID 07ca:b835)
– Avermedia AVerTV A835 HD PRO (ID 07ca:a835)
– Avermedia AverTV A835 Green HD (ID 07ca:a835)
– TerraTec Cinergy T Stick (ID 0ccd:0093)

$ git clone git://
$ cd DVB-AF9035_kernel-3.2.0
$ make
$ sudo make install

3. Download the firmware(s)

$ cd /lib/firmware/

Note that for French TV, it is necessary to set the source with a shift of 167khz.

Solution 4

This process no longer makes the Volar Green functional in Ubuntu 14.04. The firmware has been re-mapped to dvb-usb-it9135-02 firmware instead of the dvb-usb-af9035 firmware which has completely broken my 4 tuner system. Used to work with 14.04 doesn’t now.

I think the dvb-usb-it9135 is the correct firmware for the Volar Black and it has been assumed that it is also correct for the Volar Green.

The Green and the Black are different chips – simples!!!! ask any meerkat.

Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
