Slackware 14 - long pause during boot - udev killed


I use Slackware 14 64bit. In early stage of booting (just few seconds after initrd) I get 30s pause and message saying something like:
Code:
udevd ... seq 'devices/pci000.../0000:04:01.0' killed
udevd ... seq 'devices/pci000.../0000:04:01.1' killed
udevd ... seq 'devices/pci000.../0000:04:01.2' killed
and after some time (still booting):
Code:
worker ... terminated by signal 9
3 times

Sorry for incomplete messages, I couldn't find them in logs.
Code:
lspci -s 0000:04:01 -v
04:01.0 Multimedia video controller: Conexant Systems, Inc. CX23880/1/2/3 PCI Video and Audio Decoder (rev 05)
	Subsystem: LeadTek Research Inc. Device 6f38
	Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 19
	Memory at f5000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M]
	Capabilities: [44] Vital Product Data
	Capabilities: [4c] Power Management version 2
	Kernel driver in use: cx8800

04:01.1 Multimedia controller: Conexant Systems, Inc. CX23880/1/2/3 PCI Video and Audio Decoder [Audio Port] (rev 05)
	Subsystem: LeadTek Research Inc. Device 6f38
	Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 19
	Memory at f4000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M]
	Capabilities: [4c] Power Management version 2
	Kernel driver in use: cx88_audio

04:01.2 Multimedia controller: Conexant Systems, Inc. CX23880/1/2/3 PCI Video and Audio Decoder [MPEG Port] (rev 05)
	Subsystem: LeadTek Research Inc. Device 6f38
	Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 19
	Memory at f3000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M]
	Capabilities: [4c] Power Management version 2
	Kernel driver in use: cx88-mpeg driver manager
I've googled for similar problems and tried to blacklist cx88* modules but it doesn't help.

Edit:
This PCI device is tv tuner: Leadtek DTV1800H

If no one has real solution, maybe you could help me with changing udev timeout to 1s? Waiting 30s during boot is so frustrating...

This will not answer your questions but here is some more information:

I guess it is a TV card correct?

More on the Kernel module:

Add the kernel modules for those devices to your initrd image. I had a similar problem with my wireless card on my HP 635.
