In Debian Sid, Mythtv was recently updated to the last version 
29.1+fixes20180603.git1777cc4425-dmo1 from http://www.deb-multimedia.org.

My capture card is no more recognized:

$ mythtv-setup
Can't open DVB frontend (/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0) for /dev/dvb/adapter0/

However /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0 exists:

$ ls -l /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0 
crwxrwxrwx 1 root root 212, 0 juin   4 21:56 /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0

The card works. There is a tool (from the vendor) that shows that the card 

$ mediaclient -e
**** List of Media Hardware Devices ****
device 0: [SkyTV Ultimate 6 2016/Q1]  DVB-S/S2, ANALOG-TV, REMOTE-CONTROL, 

Mythtv is also installed on another pc and there the card is recognized.

I let mythtv-setup delete the card and create a new one, it does not work. It 
says it can't find the type of card and that there is an unknown error.

Also the frontend cannot connect to database although it is running:

# systemctl status mythtv-backend

I tried without success
#dpkg-reconfigure mythtv-database
#dpkg-reconfigure mythtv-common

It does not help.
