I reinstalled udev, installed hotplug and coldplug (emerge suggested
that) but it didn't help.
The kernel modules that I have are DVB Core Support and Budget cards
with onboard CI connector.
I have other modules as well, all that were needed to get my plain old
WinTV PVR 350 to work. The two above are the newly installed modules for
the satellite card.
I haven't touched the kernel or any modules since it worked so I guess
that it shouldn't be a kernel issue.
