DVB-T drivers can be loaded by using these commands:

- modprobe cx88_dvb
- modprbe cx8800
- modprobe cx22700

Linux 2.6.24 kernel will require a following patch: (2.6.25 includes the patch by default)

In addition at least Mandriva 2008.1 running the kernels 2.6.24 - 2.6.26 has some problems for loading the drivers for this card. Dmesg does not show any errors and /dev/dvb/adapter0 directory is created but card can still not be accessed with DVB applications.

Following is a working workaround for this problem: (Replace with better method if known)

1. Backup and remove directory /lib/modules/<kernel-version>/drivers/media/video/cx88 temporarily to safe location
2. Reboot --> cx88 drivers can not be loaded automatically
3. Restore the cx88 directory back to location from where removed before the boot
4. load cx88_dvb, cx8800 and cx22700 drivers with modprobe
