I think this is because you need to update your version of udev.
In FC3, the MAKEDEV-DVB.sh method has been superceded by using the udev
system. i.e., FC3 has switched from a static /dev/ directory to one that
is dynamically managed via udev. This allows device nodes to be
demand as drivers are loaded.
For more information on udev, refer to the udev(8) man page and the
following link: http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/udev/

Hmm, not sure why this is happening, I think you want to ensure your
dvb apps match your driver and that you have a fairly consistent set
of up-to-date system RPMs overall.
The A800 works pretty well for me... with the exception of mythtv
of course ;^)
