OP just needs to load cx88-dvb through his distro's supplied automatic 
module-loading scripts (i.e. /etc/modules or /etc/sysconfig/modules or 
/etc/modprobe/cx88-dvb or ... --ask on your distro's fora/mailing lists) 
or through an appropriate modprobe.conf entry (the first is easier than 
the second approach).  Note, also, that Linux 2.6.21 will likely fix the 
issue causing cx88-dvb to fail to load automatically, so doing things 
incorrectly (i.e. through auto-module-loading scripts) for such a short 
time is not a big deal.

See, also, the thread at

more information.
