It's definitely setup as an encoder... I'll admit I'm about of a n00b here
on this but here is my permissions for my video cards.

crw-rw---- 1 root video 81,  0 2007-09-20 21:00 video0
crw-rw---- 1 root video 81, 24 2007-09-20 21:00 video24
crw-rw---- 1 root video 81, 32 2007-09-20 21:00 video32

Do these look correct? video0 is my capture card.
BTW since the post earlier I have reinstalled.  I am running Ubuntu Feisty
with a fresh install of .20.2 no upgrade.
