If you want to change the ownership, you should be able to:
chown "to your user name" /dev/dvb/adapter0 , or possibly
chmod u+rwx /dev/dvb/adapter0 (to add user permission to read, write, execute)
If root is the current owner, you'd have to be root to use the above commands.

If all you're trying to do is get modules loaded on boot, then list them in
the order you want them installed in /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6 (or
2.4 if you're still using a 2.4 kernel).
I can't help you with the rest as I'm just starting my own 1st mythtv build.
My own troubles are soon to follow :>),
