Actually, that message is an important message (meaning you'll get it
unless you do -v noimportant).
If you really want to ignore it, just filter the logs--i.e. start
mythbackend without -l and redirect output to a program that ignores
mythbackend 2>&1 | grep -v 'Failed to open demux device' > filtered_log
Or just comment out the message (or change it's log level) in the
source. mythtv/libs/libmythtv/dvbstreamhandler.cpp around about line 845.
