ok ive gotten the thing to register. It seems that the frontend is all registered and everything. And from what i gather that should be enough to make it work right? WRONG! MythTV still cant see it, and there is no /dev/dvb folder.
dmesg produces this result in reference to the DVB card

However mythtvsetup still cant find the card. Im assuming its working to some degree as the frontend on the card seems to have registered ok.
My current modprobe.preload contains these lines in reference to dvb
bttv card=0x71 i2c_hw=1
can anyone help in anyway?
