Yes, I thought that to but then I didn't make it work and assumed that
it would need an re-install (Windoze syndrome ;-))

Here is one output:

[root at HTPC ~]# ls -la /dev/dvb/adapter*
ls: /dev/dvb/adapter*: No such file or directory

Searching in the mesg output, I can not find anything like you wrote.
Kworld or DVB are only present in the string as I wrote before.
So the registering of new adapter/frontend is not done, I assume.

Ok, what is the next step to take, please help!
