I have EXACTLY the same problem with my MythBuntu build - working one day,
not the next. I have done as you have above with zero success. No log
messages, dmesg reports everything is loaded.

I will be watching this thread to see how it results. If nothing surfaces I
am switching to MythDora, I am quickly growing tired of MythBuntu.....
