Good morning Roger and Hoi Hika, I went ahead and added the
GROUP="video", opened the BE set up, and even though:

daryl at daryl-A780L3C:~$ ls -i /dev/dvb*
8104 adapter0  8484 adapter3  7988 HP1250  8634 PC800i
daryl at daryl-A780L3C:~$

the symlinks seem to be in force, same scenario, no presentation of
symlink name, and error message if I type it in.

I changed the numbers to 1 and 3 for the PC800i and HP1250
respectively in /etc/modprobe.d/dvb-options.conf and only the later
picks up. Why are there four different numbers preceding the adapters
and symlinks?    Daryl
