That wasn't it, but thank you for the suggestion, it lead me
to the right track:
2012-03-26 09:49:38.249 DVBChan(1:/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0) Error: Failed to open DVB frontend device due to fatal error or too many attempts.
ls -l /dev/dvb/adapter*/frontend0
crw-rw----+ 1 root video 212, 3 2012-03-26 16:34 /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0
crw-rw----+ 1 root video 212, 7 2012-03-26 16:34 /dev/dvb/adapter1/frontend0
I'm not quite sure what exactly those should be or what'd changed
them (I suspect apt-get upgrade - yeah, I know, but...)
Anyway, I did
usermod -G video mythtv
and it works again. :-)
Changing the ownership/permissions of those device files would've
presumably worked as well, but I'm guessing usermod like that
is more robust against updates &c.
