OK, this confirms my suspicion. I saw that the HD3000 was not recognized 
on one of my re-boots, and I surmised, but never bothered to test, that 
mythbackend must be started after the cx88_dvb module has been loaded.
Since I was right there, I just added s 'service mythbackend restart' 
line to rc.local and left it at that.

'Restart' cleans up any leftover lock files and cruft which may be 
lurking around from a prior crash etc.
