First things first.
What errors are in the dmesg output? 
(i.e. provide a dmesg output from the line loading the cx23885 driver onwards, ensure that you have tried to tune channels before doing this)

Does it work in Windows on the same computer with the same antenna?

What does the dvb scan program give you when you try to scan for channels?

You said that the fw loads, is it the correct one (there are multiple copies of firmware running around for this tuner, it should state that it loaded 80 images in the dmesg)?



P.S. If you have gotten my email from the linux dvb list, please include it in the cc field in the email. So that others can learn from the problems and hopefully save me from typing the same response over and over. (By the way have checked the mailing list and tried the other solutions to problems people have encountered with this card?).
