[mythtv-users] problem on hybrid card that share same bus

The way I got around this problem is to create some symlinks in /dev/dvb. 
have a udev rule that automatically links DVB0:1 to DVB1:0 - then to
Mythtv it 
looks like I have two DVB cards when actually there is only one.

So my real 
devices are:
/dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0, dvr1, etc

and I have symlinks

/dev/dvb/adapter1/dvr0 -> adapter0/dvr1
/dev/dvb/adapter1/demux0 -> 

(Or you could use the single front end patch for the 
HVR3000 then you
select whether you want DVB-T or DVB-S with a module parameter 
- but if
your card is working, I'd say the symlink approach is easier)


Thank you very much Robert!!
I don't really know what is a "udev rule" (I'll 
search for it..), but just I'll back home I'll try to create symbolic link as 
you suggested!!
Another question: I don't understand, with this method, can I 
use the dvb-s and dvb-t  simultaneously? 
(e.g record some dvb-s program while 
watching dvb-t one?)
Another time, thanks
