Proper netiquette for mailing lists is to write your new text BELOW the 
quoted content.

With that aside, I was under the impression ( based on Simon's email - 
http://linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2006-June/010896.html ) that you 
have compiled the cx88 driver and the dvb modules static INTO your 
kernel (not as modules).  If that is the case, then you yes, you will 
need to recompile your kernel after applying the patch above.

However, you're talking about some driver installer from Chris' website? 
  In which case, you either DID compile these driver as modules, and the 
patch above will not help you, OR you are experiencing driver conflicts 
between the static in-kernel driver and the new modules from Chris' site.

Now this all sounds like a mess to me...  Let's instead start it from 
the top:

#1) make sure that you have v4l and dvb stuff selected in your kernel to 

#2) forget about the patch above

#3) forget about Chris' web site

#4) build the new modules from the linuxtv.org MASTER mercurial 
repository. (

Chris' patches have already been merged into the master hg tree on 

#5) reboot your computer

Good Luck!
