Many thanks. Unfortunately the problem remains. I get this from 
kernel.log:

An ls of /dev/dvb/adapter0/ gives:
[root at freevo ~]# ls -l /dev/dvb/adapter0/
total 0
crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 4 2006-01-06 15:29 demux0
crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 5 2006-01-06 15:29 dvr0
crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 7 2006-01-06 15:29 net0

So still no frontend driver.

Umm...

My modprobe line looks like this:

dst dst_algo=0


Is there anything else I should be doing?

Kind regards
