I remember reading, and my setup, has the ivtv driver first (video0 and
video1), followed by whatever cx88* drivers.

If you use cx88_dvb + blackbird, the card should show up at
If you use cx8800 the card would be (was for me, when I tried it) at
/dev/video2  (NTSC...) I haven't tried the cx88-atsc but I presume that it
could easily show up at /dev/video32..
