what are the dvb cards?

what does dmesg tell you about detection of the cards?

Did you cold boot so that any firmware would be loaded afresh?


what permissions/ownership DOES /dev/vidoe0 have (the user you are
loggged in as may not have permission to go there, it's the user that
runs mythbackend that needs to!)

Sorry some of these questions may be answered in your earlier threads,
but I see no reason to search them out. :)
