Manu is correct, and I see that you're already trying to do that, but 
you are wrong in your method...

install cx88-atsc /sbin/modprobe cx8800;/sbin/modprobe --ignore-install 

^^ this doesn't exist

install cx88-dvb /sbin/modprobe cx8800;/sbin/modprobe --ignore-install 

^^ this is wrong


install cx88-dvb /sbin/modprobe cx88-dvb;/sbin/modprobe --ignore-install 

^^ THIS might be more like it.

Good Luck,
