I have all those things with the exception being that I run myth on a
gentoo box and built it from an ebuild.  This may be helpful in that I
didn't specify anything like that, and my setup works.  It may be that
gentoo defaults that value to a location and you should know that i
had to create some sym links from the driver locations created by my
cx88-dvb driver (/dev/dvb.net0, /dev/dvb.dvr0 etc) to where myth was
looking for them (/dev/dvb/adapter0/net0 etc.).
