I don't know about this aspect that the HDTV5 needs to be bttv0 to work. 
Mike can comment on this better.

If it is the 2nd card, you need to change the order in which card= option.

The only concern with the DST is that it uses Hardware I2C. This has to 
be specified as a module parameter to bttv , else probably a lockup 
would happen. For bttv when card=0xYY is specified, the expected 
behaviour should be that only the card should be initialized. Maybe you 
can check whether that behaviour still remains the same.
