[linux-dvb] Hauppauge HVR-3000, but I guess this is a general error

Hallo all!
I made myself a present and bought the HVR-3000 and I wanted to make a
MythTV box.
So I installed ubuntu edgy, and then installed the kernel-package to get
all build utilitys for the kernel. Then I downloaded Steves drivers for
the card from http://linuxtv.org/hg/~stoth/hvr3000 (thank you really
Steve for those drivers, I owe you a beer if we meet sometime). I
compiled them but I got an error:

  CC [M]  /home/s2/Desktop/hvr3000-71bc28bf7765/v4l/aci.o
/home/s2/Desktop/hvr3000-71bc28bf7765/v4l/aci.c:68:26: error:
sound_config.h: No such file or directory
/home/s2/Desktop/hvr3000-71bc28bf7765/v4l/aci.c: In function

I didn't know where to get that sound_config.h so i did:
root at back:/home/s2/Desktop/hvr3000-71bc28bf7765/v4l# make menuconfig

but I got an error:

scripts/kconfig/lxdialog/dialog.h:31:20: error: curses.h: No such file
or directory

that was an easy fix:

apt-get install libncurses5-dev libncurses5

after that the make menuconfig worked and I disabled the ACI mixer
(Audio devices for multimedia)

That done the driver compiled cleanly with make, so I installed it with
make install and rebooted (at this point I was all sweaty and excited).

The box came back up and I installed dvb-utils, dvbtune and some other
dvb related packages to try the dvb-s and dvb-t tuners out.

then I followed this guide http://parker1.co.uk/mythtv_ubuntu.php
because I am really new to all this stuff, and didn't even know from
where to begin.

so after i did
scan /usr/share/doc/dvb-utils/examples/scan/dvb-t/it-Bolzano  >

i got
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
main:2247: FATAL: failed to open '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0': 2 No
such file or directory

where is frontend0? did the compiled module create it on load?
in my syslog i get:
=> /var/log/syslog <==
Nov 23 13:17:36 back kernel: [17180453.848000] cx8802_probe() allocating
2 frontends

so I guess the modules are working?

Sorry for the long post, and thanks in advance for any pointers.
