Just wondering if anyone has managed to get DVB reception working in a
Xen doesn't support USB access from domUs but I thought I'd sneakily try
slotting in a USB PCI card and assigning the PCI card to the domU. It
seems to work but when I try to load the firmware I get an error
claiming the firmware isn't available (it is, in both /lib/firmware and

(dvb-usb-wt220u-02.fw) Please see linux/Documentation/dvb/ for more
details on firmware-problems. (-2)
Any ideas, or am I just being much too sneaky trying to get this working
under Xen? Much prefer to have it running under Xen so I can do other
things with the machine while the MythTV instance doesn't change with
every modification I make elsewhere.
