[mythtv-users] MythTV does not recognize my Twinhan DVB card

Thanks for the tips. It did not work, but I found out that I also needed a
modprobe dst. After that MythTV recognizes my DVB card.
Now I only need to setup the channels...
I have also a PVR-350 board for which I have setup channels, video source
and an XMLTV grabber. I am uncertain how to handle it correctly.
I guess I should create a different "video source" for the DVB card, but I
want to use the same XMLTV grabber. But the grabber seems to be associated
to the "video source". Is that a problem ?
