Hi Mauro,
I have pulled the latest Mercurial source (at about 13:30 BST), compiled 
and installed. I also removed the "tuner=38" workaround from my 
modprobe.conf file. On reboot the WinTV cx88 card was detected correctly 
  - thus curing the original problem in the standard 2.6.25 drivers. 
Also, tvtime works OK with created devices - tuning to all 5 channels OK.
The dmesg trace is below.

About how long would it take for a fix like this to reach the kernel 
tree - any chance for 2.6.25?

Many thanks
Regards
Ian
