During this years VDR-CAMP I had the same problem while helping someone to
setup an Ubuntu-based system with a HVR4000. Artem Makhutov already
suggested a solution, but this one is a little bit less intrusive:

Create a file /etc/hal/fdi/preprobe/10-ignore-cx88-ir.fdi with the
following content:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<deviceinfo version="0.2">
  <device>
     <match key="info.product" contains_ncase="cx88 IR">
        <merge key="info.ignore" type="bool">true</merge>
     </match>
  </device>
</deviceinfo>
