Thanks Darren

I managed to work this out by trial and error about 20 minutes before I read 
your email.
I just with I had askd the question sooner and saved myself a days worth of 
fiddling in all the wrong places!

I find it a bit confusing though. The reason I was building/loading the 
budget module (as opposed to the budget_ci module) was because my Nova-t 
card doesn't seem to have any kind of connector for a CAM. Am I just 
confused, or is this a bit misleading?

Anyway, the card is being recognised now, but I now have another problem. 
udev creates incorrect device nodes for the dvb card. It creates 
/dev/dvb0.demux0 etc. instead of /dev/dvb0/demux0

Any ideas how I can fix this?

Thanks again for your help!
