Nice summary - thanks!
Yah, 3 doesn't matter for me. As for 2 - they do have different kernel
modules but I'm assuming that is abstracted away by the time myth gets
to them. Like you say, suck it and see :)
Plus I'm not sure how to setup a udev rule for a DVB device. As far as I
can tell udev rules apply to single devices, e.g /dev/video0 wheres as
dvb adapters are 4 devices (demux0 dvr0 frontend0 net0) under one
