[mythtv-users] /dev/video0 doesn't exist

Hi all.

I'm doing a first time install of MythTv on Gentoo for a friend and I've run 
into a problem.

No matter what I do, I don't seem to have a /dev/video0 file.  If I create it 
with mknod, when I try to open it, I get an error indicating that the device 
isn't found.

My friend's machine has a Haupauge 250 card in it.

I'm wondering if the card has to be actually plugged into a cable connection 
before the kernel will see the card?

Any other ideas would be appreciated.
