Hi Gordon,

Can you eliminate permission problems with a:
# chmod 666 /dev/video*
# chmod 666 /dev/dvb/adapter*/*

I personally am running MythTV from SVN-Head as I discovered quite a
number of bugs in 0.20 that severely impeded my MythTV experience
compared to 0.19 (the kind of bugs that I feel are enough by
themselves to justify that mysterious 0.20.1 release...), though I was
able to at least use my tuner card. Anyway, if the above doesn't work
(or you find those same bugs that I did) I suggest you try checking
out the code from either SVN-Head or at least the 0.20-Fixes branch
and see if that works with your card.

SVN-Head is not guaranteed to be working at the time of checkout - one
of the svn updates I did last year happened to be in the few hours
where a bug that stopped MythTV from working at all had been
introduced and before the commit came in that fixed it. Other than
that I've probably updated about a dozen times with _almost_ no
serious problems. Oh, and I suggest not compiling MythPhone...


On the day *I* go to work for Microsoft, faint oinking sounds will be
heard from far overhead, the moon will not merely turn blue but
develop polkadots, and hell will freeze over so solid the brimstone
will go superconductive.
