The AverTV Hybrid Volar Max supporting video capture over NTSC, ATSC/QAM, and S-Video. This is a 'hybrid' tuner, meaning that both analog and digital capture is handled by the same hardware, and the two cannot be used simultaneously.

x64-0.10 beta drivers included an API.txt file that says "AverMedia AverTV Volar /HX/AX/MAX supports the following API.

Video for Linux 2(V4L2): for analog TV Linux DVB: for digital TV"

Testing OTA ATSC using the Hybrid Volar Max (H826), works fine in MythTV and Kaffeine. No chance to test QAM/NTSC yet. Looks like it's siblings (Plain Volax HX/AX) should also work.
