  Doesn't work as expected
What doesn't work:

Works only after a manual driver installation; driver installation must be repeated at every kernel upgrade.

What was done to make it work:

Execute all steps with sudo or as root!

1. Install software:
wajig install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/~jhoogenraad/rtl2831-r2/

2. Execute the following commands:
cd rtl2831-r2/
make distclean
make allyesconfig

3. Open file .config in folder v4l/ and change
CONFIG_DVB_FIREDTV=m to
CONFIG_DVB_FIREDTV=n

4. Compile driver (as root or with sudo):
make
make install

After every kernel update, repeat steps 2-4!

Additional notes:

lsusb identifies the device as:

ID 14aa:0160 AVerMedia (again) or C&E

I did not set up the remote control yet.....
