Great, I tried that and eventually it worked.
I I created a file (cx88) in /etc/modules.d with the options line in it, rmmoded tuner followed by modprobing it back and nothing,
So I unloaded a load of modules (trying to work back to unload cx88xx, but not getting that far) and ran this:-

rmmod tuner; sleep 5; modprobe tuner; dmesg |grep tda

And magically after 5 seconds:-
[17201706.416000] tda9887 2-0043: tda988[5/6/7] found @ 0x43 (tuner)

Then I managed to run scantv and pick up everything I expected to, great.

Looking back I had unloaded tuner cx88xx cx8802 and cx8800

I'll reboot in a bit and try again without your modules file and see if that in important or not.

Thanks loads
