[linux-dvb] Unable to get dvbnet working on Ubuntu 9.04

Hi,
I'm trying to use dvbnet to get at data from an Avermedia 771 and I'm  
not seeing any activity on the new interface. I've done just about  
everything I can find with my weak google-fu including turning off the  
default rp_filter setting. I hope someone with experience of this can  
spot an obvious mistake! I'm going to drop back to 8.04.03 to see if  
that helps.


* tzap is running. *
* dvbtraffic reports good data on the expected pids *
