    Try modprobe cx8800 and then modprobe tda9887 . That will load the necesary modules for your tv tuner. To make this change permanent ,edit
    the modprobe.conf file found in /etc adding the following lines in the tv card section :

    alias char-major-81 videodev
    alias char-major-81-0 cx8800
    alias char-major-81-1 cx8800
    alias char-major-81-2 cx8800
    alias char-major-81-3 cx8800

    options cx8800 irq_debug=1 tuner=38 card=5 video_debug=1 audio_debug=1 video_nr=0 radio_nr=0

    This should work. Good luck!
