What happens if you try this:

modprobe cx88xx card=19
modprobe cx88-dvb

...I'd imagine that might actually get the card working, although it 
would be nice to add your card's subsystem id into the driver for 
autodetection.  Please try the above, and send back to the list the 
output produced in 'dmesg' , regardless of whether it works or not.  
After that, I can generate some patches for you to test.
