Make sure that the 'tuner' module and the 'cx25840' modules are both loaded.

Make sure that you're using the lower spigot (if you have 2 spigots)
or the middle spigot (if you have 3 spigots)

BTW, your email is off-topic for the linux-dvb mailing list.  I added
cc to the linux-media mailing list, which is more appropriate for your
analog television problem.

Mike
