Looks exactly like mine when I first set it up.  Have you tried 
rebooting the backend?  It is definitely recognizing it.

What does lspci -v say?

I ran into a problem, and are not sure where to go from here.   When I
get to the part in Jarod's guide about testing my PVR 250, my system
cannot find a video0 (or any other video#) directories.

On the step where you do /bin/dmesg |grep ivtv, I get the following
results, which do not include the line that that the guide says we are
interested in.  I have followed all the steps, and cannot figure out
why the system does not seem to recognize my PVR 250 card.
