The card gets detected and installed straight away. However for me the card couldn't lock for either DVB-S or DVB-T.

To solve the DVB-S part, I installed the 1.26.90 firmware:

wget http://www.wintvcd.co.uk/drivers/88x_2_125_28070_WHQL.zip
unzip -jo 88x_2_125_28070_WHQL.zip Driver88/hcw88bda.sys
sudo dd if=hcw88bda.sys of=/lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116- skip=105768 bs=1 count=32674
sudo ln -s /lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116- /lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116.fw

DVB-T doesn't work due to a faulty driver in the 2.6.32 kernel. I don't know how to fix this so, if anyone does feel, free to explain. Do note: I have tried installing the v4l-dvb-20100517 drivers but then all my cards were lost in MythTV-Setup.
