Sorry, I guess I had a brain hiccup. What I should have said was rc.modules,
which loads before all other scripts (or should anyway). I tried your
suggestion (editing the mythbackend init script) as well as trying a forced
modprobe in rc.modules. Both had no effect. Firmware loading still fails in
exactly the same way.
I'm beginning to think that maybe there is something wrong with the way that
mythbackend accesses the dvb card that makes it fail to load the firmware
during boot. I have no way to confirm it short of finding the place in the
code that does it and comparing to other code (like, maybe, azap). Maybe
someone could suggest a way to access the dvb card that would force the
firmware to load that does not require it to be manually stopped (like azap
Thanks for the help David. If you or anyone else has any additional
suggestions or experience they would like to relate I'm always open to more
