The key problem I am having is that there appears to be no information on this specific tuner available. It is a usb dvb-t/atsc tuner, and that is all the information I could find, excluding that it is made by the YUAN High-Tech Development Co.
lsusb | grep YUAN
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 1164:1ee9 YUAN High-Tech Development Co., Ltd
I have downloaded firmware for similar devices by the same company that is given by the linuxtv wiki (dvb-usb-dib0700) and that doesn't appear to work.
The fact that when you google: "1164:1ee9" linux, you only get 3 results the first of which is related to a wifi driver and is not relevant to this issue, the second of which claims to have the driver but 404's when you attempt to get it, the third of which is a russian page about touchscreens. As you can see none of those links are very useful in regards to TV Tuners.
"YUAN MC782/PD782S DVB-T Hybrid TV AVS Video Capture Drivers" is the name of the driver it appears this device uses on windows operating systems if that is any help. (Information provided to me by Danial Jose)
If anybody could offer assistance on this issue, it would be extremely helpful and perhaps others with this same card will be able to get it working also.
