You don't say what your feed source is.
If you are doing OTA or ATSC from cable you cannot use the cx8800 
module. You must use the cx88_dvb module. But the kernel wants to load 
the cx8800 module *first*. Then the hardware shows up at /dev/video0 
instead of /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0.

Add the cx8800 module to the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist file and re-boot.
