I ain't no dummy, but I just don't know what I'm doing....

I'm not new to linux, but I just can't seem to get this
HD3000 card to work.

First time: BIOS froze on power up
second time: BIOS reports unknown device, and
kernel reports that it has unknown
header type = 22; lspci show no device
third time: BIOS and kernel do not complain,
lspci shows unknown device
fourth time: lspci shows "Nextcom K.K. unknown device"

I've got kernel 2.6.19.1, compiled from source. It has
or51132 or51211 dvb-core cx8800 cx8802 cx88-alsa
cx88-blackbird cx88xx modules, but I could not find
anything called cx88-dvb in the kernel configuration.

I could not compile the drivers or tools from pchdtv.org,
due to errors. I resort to using the precompiled ones
for FC2.

The firmware is in /lib/firmware, where it belongs (set as
FIRMWARE_DIR=/lib/firmware in /etc/hotplug/firmware.agent).

I made these device nodes:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 2008-12-19 15:24 /dev/dtv -> dtv0
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 81, 32 2008-12-19 15:23 /dev/dtv0
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 81, 33 2008-12-19 15:23 /dev/dtv1
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 81, 34 2008-12-19 15:24 /dev/dtv2
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 81, 35 2008-12-19 15:24 /dev/dtv3
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 2008-12-19 15:24 /dev/video32 -> dtv0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 2008-12-19 15:24 /dev/video33 -> dtv1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 2008-12-19 15:24 /dev/video34 -> dtv2
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 2008-12-19 15:24 /dev/video35 -> dtv3

When I load any of the modules, there is nothing reported
in the logs (dmesg), and dtvsignal /dev/dtv always reports
that there is no such device.

Could someone please help me avoid having to buy a
$4000 television set?

ps Found cx88-dvb in another section of the kernel
configuration, compiled it, loaded it, got nothing in
the logs (dmesg) and "No such device" from the tools.
