Your instructions at http://linuxtv.org/repo/ for obtaining v4l-dvb say 
to execute:

hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb

But this returns

abort: error: Name or service not known

Perhaps there is a mistake in the instructions.

It seems this checkout step is not really required, as you can download 
the tarball from a link on the page at the URL.

I also find it confusing that you mention dvb-apps, but don't talk about 
compiling it. Is it needed? Optional? An alternative?

Are there additional steps not presented here? I was unable to get my 
Hauppage HVR-950 to work on Ubuntu 8.04. Does this package support that
