[mythtv-users] DVB not supported in kernel - but it is!?

It looks like your system is creating bttv0 fot it's dvb frontend. Are you able to select bttv0 as the dvb adapter in mythtv?
Also it might be worth while checking the permissions on bttv0, I had issues with the mythtv user being unable to access the dvb device due to lack of permission. Since the device was dynamically created I had to add a chmod command to my rc.local script to give mythtv access

Maybe not a lot of help...
When I emerge MythTV, it looks in the /usr/include directory.
However, if you are using dvb support from the kernel, then the
includes are in (assuming you compile in /usr/src)
I had to manually edit the ebuild to show that location instead of the
default /usr/include. Also, you will have to recompile (re-emerge)
mythtv with USE="dvb" as one of your USE flags (either at the command
line or in make.conf).
