I'm happy to hear that it's all working for you now.

For anybody interested, as of today, you can install ALL modules from a 
merged dvb-kernel + v4l-kernel cvs tree by using v4l-kernel's 
merge-trees build environment.

In other words, by following the directions for tree-merge on the 
wiki-howto, located at 
http://linuxtv.org/v4lwiki/index.php/How_to_build_from_CVS the following 
command will install ALL modules from BOTH dvb-kernel AND v4l-kernel:

make merge-trees && make && make install

Please let me know if there are any problems / unexpected behavior.
