[mythtv-users] Device or resource busy.

I'm getting the two following messages repeating in my mythbackend log when 
attempting to watch live tv, which only shows a solid blue or green color:
VIDIOCMCAPTURE1: Device or resource busy
VIDIOCMCAPTURE0: Device or resource busy

tvtime works perfectly fine, and the mythtv user has permissions to 
access /dev/video0 and the sound card.

I'm using mythtv on debian sid (x86-64, kernel 2.6.25-2-amd64), using the 
debian multimedia packages and the backend says its version 
is "0.21.20080304-1".

My tv card is a WinTV 401 (dbx, radio, etc).
