Simon, I think you need to load the module cx88_dvb like this:

    modprobe cx88_dvb

Check to see what has been loaded using lsmod

I think then you will then see some messages in dmesg like :

cx88[0]/2: cx2388x based dvb card
dvb: videobuf_dvb_register_adapter()
DVB: registering new adapter (cx88[0]).
dvb: videobuf_dvb_register_adapter() returns 0
DVB: registering frontend 0 (Conexant CX22702 DVB-T)...
DVB: registering frontend 0 (Conexant CX24123/CX24109)...

and you should have /dev/dvb/adaptor0/ containing the front end devices 
and a few other things.
