Nah, This isn't your fault...  This was in the design of cx88-dvb.  Here 
is a patch, but first:

This is dmesg BEFORE applying the patch:

DVB: registering new adapter (cx88[0]).
DVB: registering frontend 0 (DViCO FusionHDTV 3 Gold-T)...

...and this is AFTER applying my patch:

DVB: registering new adapter (cx88[0]).
DVB: registering frontend 0 (LG Electronics LGDT3302 VSB/QAM Frontend)...

I will commit this to video4linux cvs in a few minutes... First, I want 
to investigate to see if this was done this way for a reason.... Most 
likely, it was someone's oversight.
