   May be worth a fiddle;  which module files will I need?  I know I'm 
[manually] using the cx88-dvb instead of cx88_bluebird, but which other cx88 
ones should I fiddle with?  I'm think that my PVR-350 uses some cx modules as 
well as its ones, and I don't want to break /that/.

   Ah, guess this is it:

00:09.0 Multimedia video controller: Conexant Winfast TV2000 XP (rev 05)
