As of the release of Linux Kernel 3.1, Hauppauge's WinTV-Aero-m is fully supported for use with both ATSC and DVB-T, using the new MFE framework within dvb-usb to represent two frontends on a single DVB adapter. This makes the Aero-m the first semi-worldwide terrestrial digital television broadcast receiver to be supported under Linux.
The device is built of two LG broadcast demodulators and a MaxLinear SoC. The first LG demodulator, LG DT3305, has been well supported in Linux for ATSC ever since I released it a few years ago. I've written a new driver to support the other LG demodulator,...

For those wanting to test the mxl111sf driver for the WinTV-Aero-M but not willing to rebuild your kernel, there is good news for you!
I have applied the minimal backports required to dvb-core and the dvb-usb framework to get the old mercurial repository building against Linux 3.x
I had to disable all IR / remote stuff, since there's been tons of changes there that I don't want to deal with.
I've only tested the mxl111sf driver in this tree, but other drivers may build successfully as well -- try them at your own risk. I'm willing...

I'm pleased to announce the mxl111sf Linux driver with support for ATSC on the Hauppauge WinTV-Aero-m.
The device uses a Max Linear tuner with the LG DT3305 ATSC/QAM demodulator. The device also supports ATSC-MH Mobile DTV, but that feature is not yet supported under Linux.
Since I began work on this driver over a year and a half ago, mercurial was the tool used to track development.
If you are the owner of one of these USB dongles, please feel free to give the following repository a try:
Please note, the mxl111sf mercurial development...
