[mythtv-users] No video devices in /dev

Yes, that is the issue. Thank you.
In my rc.local I have included modprobe to load ivtv.
I didn't need to do this extra step when I build my FC2 box?
Why wouldn't they be loading?
Isn't including them in modprobe.conf supposed to load them?

Sorry, I'm a Linux/Myth newb, so I'm just confused about this.
