OK, searching for "07ca:1867" reveals 
<https://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Afatech_AF9035>. The entry for 
your device says that it is supported with an unstable driver from 
Avermedia, which doesn't look too good. But searching further I also 
found this description which looks quite promising: 
<https://www.onetransistor.eu/2016/10/sky-digital-key-avermedia-a867-pc.html>.

And sorry about the package name linux-firmware-nonfree. This package 
seems to be no longer available for 16.04 (I had only checked it on my 
14.04 machine).
