I've been having some trouble getting a Hauppauge nova-t working on a 
gentoo box.

> serv3 adapter0 # uname -a
> Linux serv3 2.6.11-gentoo-r6 #4 Sat Apr 8 18:33:38 BST 2006 i686 AMD Sempron(tm) Processor 2800+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux

So the devices are set up:

 > serv3 adapter0 # ls -l
 > total 0
 > crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 1 Apr  6 20:03 audio0
 > crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 6 Apr  6 20:03 ca0
 > crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 4 Apr  6 20:03 demux0
 > crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 5 Apr  6 20:03 dvr0
 > crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 3 Apr  6 20:03 frontend0
 > crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 7 Apr  6 20:03 net0
 > crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 8 Apr  6 20:03 osd0
 > crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 0 Apr  6 20:03 video0
 > serv3 adapter0 # pwd
 > /dev/dvb/adapter0

but dvbstream is still complaining about bad file descriptors for the 
devices:

 > serv3 adapter0 # dvbstream -f 482000 512 650 -o:test.mpg
 > dvbstream v0.5 - (C) Dave Chapman 2001-2004
 > Released under the GPL.
 > Latest version available from http://www.linuxstb.org/
 > FRONTEND DEVICE: : No such device or address
 > FE_GET_INFO: : Bad file descriptor

Anyone got any clues as to why this should be? I'm really stuck now.
