Sorry, I don't. Here's the ls -l output of mine:

$ ls -l /dev/dvb*
crw-------  1 root root 212, 71 Dec 21 07:18 /dev/dvb0

total 0
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root 120 May  7  2005 adapter0
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root 120 Dec 21 07:18 adapter1

I can't remember how they got there on my system - whether I had to do
something or whether it was automatic. I did have to do something in a
udev config file to sort out permissions for the dvb adapters. Put
this line in /etc/udev/permissions.d/20-dvb.permissions and see if it


Also, maybe have a search in the archives for DVB and udev and see
what comes up as it may lead to something.
