OK, answering my own post, because I see what happened. And it sucked.
And I want others to know about it.
My kernel got updated, along with all my mythtv packages. The ivtv
packages has the kernel version in it, but when you install a new
kernel, it doesn't upgrade ivtv. So when I rebooted, ivtv didn't load,
and mythbackend must have said "Oh, that card doesn't exist anymore.
Let me remove all it's programming"!! DOH!!
Is this really a desirable "feature"? Can't it leave them in but
disabled or something?
Fortunately, I have a system backup from just 10 days ago, so I only
needed to restore that and make a few changes.
