I'm also having a problem with my HD-5000 on a 2.6.20 kernel in Ubuntu
7.04.  I can see it in lspci as a network controller I believe, and I
load the modules without error, but /dev/dvb/ is never created.

I haven't had a whole lot of time to investigate this problem due to a
recent misshap involving an overflowing fish tank which was apparently
placed too close to a shuttle frontend .....

I'm wondering if /dev/dvb/ is still on your system, but left over from
the 2.6.19 kernel....
