Was here looking for last years posts on getting a tv card working so thought I would say Hi.
Hi.
So running debian sid I just did an update/upgrade to the 3.8 kernel and a bunch of other stuff.
xfce a bit busted.
grub changed some stuff around which was not expected but fixable.
And as alluded to above tv card not working. Not sure why. Boot into 3.2 kernel - working. Boot stock or custom 3.8 no.

Also with the install of the 3.8 kernel, the 3.8 source code doesn't come with the header files even if you have the 3.2 headers installed. Maybe that is why I have no dvb modules. About to reboot and see if the latest kernel compile with headers works.

Update: rebooted and almost

And an update to the update
  sudo modprobe cx88-dvb
gets tv card working. Why it isn't automatically I don't know. Maybe I should remove the modprobe.conf entry and let the big L handle it.
