You could maybe first start it with unload option to be sure there
aren't other modules loaded about DVB, also you have to be sure DVB
wasn't compiled in the kernel.

The simple script was only to update and compil the modules, use the
scripts/rmmod.pl to load / unload the modules.

One could also simply use dmesg, like here :

dmesg |grep DVB|grep regi
which here gives me :

DVB: registering new adapter (TT-Budget/WinTV-NOVA-CI PCI)
DVB: registering frontend 0 (ST STV0299 DVB-S)...
DVB: registering new adapter (cx88[0])
DVB: registering frontend 1 (Conexant CX24116/CX24118)...
DVB: registering new adapter (cx88[1])
DVB: registering frontend 2 (Conexant CX24123/CX24109)...

So my 3 cards are detected right.

If you use multiproto driver from just.de then you have to use a patched
VDR (it's a guess as I didn't try it with an vanilla VDR).
