Dear Matthias, meanwhile I tried to emerge the
media-tv/linuxtv-dvb-firmware package too, without specifying any
DVB_CARDS flag. No way to obtain something good.

I don't know if this helps you, but the first boot message is:
"cx8802_register_driver() -> probe failed err = -19"

Maybe it doesn't have nothing in common with my issue, but I told you
anyway. I guess is something about a kernel module error.

Thank you for your support,

Flavio
