I am not a gentoo expert. I'm not using gentoo for mythtv, but for
testing audio development. Doesn't gentoo use udev now? I unmerged
coldplug so I could get the latest udev update. Mark K. on this list
uses gentoo for mythtv, he would know. sorry for not knowing more, but
you might look into the udev usage.
