Avermedia is not a type or brand of tuner. They're a HW company that assemble
certain cards/sticks from parts such as tuners, decoders etc.

Saa driver is still available from purpe.com, but only from a direct download
link (there's no page anymore):

kbtv1 includes it also, for convenience, and because its needed for the saa
backend anyway (well, some header).
The saa driver only covers video and audio (I only use "shunted" audio with
kbtv, not real audio capture). Tuner support is all userspace (directly via
iic device). The generic tuner support that comes with the driver (as example
sort of) seems to indicate that this is for a class of tuners that has three
fixed bands and must be set to switch between it (as in Philips reference
design). TDA and MKn init require some extra iic babble.
Modern silicon tuners work differently and have quite different registers that
need to be set for tuning.
