Given that the card was /dev/video1, what was /dev/video0?
Sometimes devices swap device files upon reboot. /dev/video1 may have
moved back to /dev/video0 (and myth is looking for video1).
This can be caused by the kernel loading modules in a different order,
or by taking a video device (like a webcam) out of the system.
