I gave it a go using szap and mplayer still the same results I'm afraid.
I've listed a sample of the results below.

sh-3.00$ szap 'BBC News 24'

zapping to 3 'BBC NEWS 24':

I've tried a multitude of channels and currently I just get a blank screen
using mplayer/xine/myth etc and apparently no signal. Snr, ber and unc are
always reported as 0. If there is anything else I can do to test / help
debug I'll be glad to give it a go. I'm wondering if there is a problem with
the way I extracted the firmware (which I loaded in /lib/firmware) ..

I can't post the actual firmware for the part. However, if you need the
firmware for the HVR-4000 under Linux...

ftp://167.206.143.11/outgoing/Oxford/88x_2_117_24275_1_INF.zip

Extract the zip and grab the firmware with dd:

dd if=hcw88bda.sys of=dvb-fe-cx24116.fw skip=81768 bs=1 count=32522
