AVerTV Volar HD PRO not recognized by Mint 14


Hello, I newly installed Mint 14 Nadia (64-bit version) Cinnamon.
Linux 3.5.0.17-generic (x86_64)
Stick : AVerTV Volar HD PRO A835 is not recognized.
So far I have not found any useful infos on what might fix this.
Me TV and Kaffeine will be for viewing.
Please help. Thanks

I get stuck here :
nadine@nadine-Aspire-E1-531 ~ $ hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/~anttip/tda18218
Abbruch: 'http://linuxtv.org/hg/~anttip/tda18218' scheint kein hg Projektarchiv zu sein:
== >> Break: .... seems NOT to be a hg projectarchive

Since this is kernel 3.5.0.17
all I needed to do was :

wget http://xgazza.altervista.org/Linux/D...b-af9035-02.fw
plus :
sudo cp dvb-usb-af9035-02.fw /lib/firmware/dvb-usb-af9035-02.fw

then I did a reboot and it worked.
- solved !!

I was also informed, that this may also help :
additional installation (from Paketsource) : linux-firmware-nonfree
