I've been using myth for quite a while now and I use it a lot with my
roommates. Recently I've stumbled on a problem which is partly a mythtv
I'm using a PVR500 and 350 for recording TV, which gives me 3 video devices:
Lately I got a webcam which I want to use for Zoneminder(looking forward
to the ZM-plugin ;)), which works fine using the gspcav-driver.
This one uses:
All this works under FC6, until I reboot then the webcam gets
/dev/video0 and the PVR's shift a number up.
This would be ok if the cam is always connected, but it isn't so the
nummbers will keep switching around and 1 channel less in mythtv.
Is there a way to force the webcam to be loaded last after the PVR's are
loaded?(because it seems to be loaded before the PVR's)
Or, alternatively, is there a way to force the webcam to load at a fixed
Can this be done by a udev-rule?
