Hmm. I've been using a cx88-dvb card for about 9 months, perhaps more. I
read about it somewhere before that, but I can't remember.

Yes you need a new kernel..

Or you can get the video4linux and dvb CVS trees and compile the drivers
from those. But it seems like that is quite messy because cx88-dvb needs
both trees, not just the dvb tree.

Maybe Ubuntu will have a newer kernel that has the module. Unfortunately
the latest Debian kernel does not have that driver although I expect it
will be in the next version.
