I missed the beginning of this thread, but have you looked at which
dvb modules are being loaded?


For my Nova-t card I had to manually modprobe cx88_dvb (I think that's
the correct name) because the wrong [blackbird] module was being
automatically loaded.

It was the

/sbin/modprobe cx88_dvb

command that created the /dev/dvb/adapter stuff

( look in dmesg for errors / success messages)

I'm not saying that this is the module for you (though it's worth a
try) but you need to find out which module it is you need, and check
that it is being loaded.
