Firstly, I am just someone using also Ubuntu 6.10 who bought a DVB card supported by Linux and also followed your steps.

I discovered that sometimes all the correct device nodes are not created automatically - I had to create them, I used a script such as that detailed here:


which did the job.

My biggest problem past this was defining a uk-Mendip file which worked, in the end I had to hand craft my own using a frequency equation supplied by users on this list which pointed me in the correct direction.

Good luck - it can be real frustrating - but brilliant once you get it working!!!
