  All this means is that you have a card with a CX88 family chip on it. 
There are dozens of variations on CX88 based cards, the linux CX88 
driver has this huge table of cards in it, that handles all the variations.

  Id be checking the dmesg output at boot/module load time to check your 
card is actually being properly detected.

  One of the differences between CX88 cards is the tuner. On analogue 
you could very well get static if the broadcast decoder bit is running 
(The CX88 chip) but the driver has failed to setup the tuner to a valid 
TV transmission.
