Background information: I am running mythbuntu 1204 beta, with the.25 version that was built 0406 build 0401ecad.
I did the above steps manually, and I am still having the kernel crash.I did find that the last thing done in mythbackend was the following line
Apr 7 19:20:13 myth1204 mythbackend: I CoreContext v4lchannel.cpp:661 (SetInputAndFormat) V4LChannel(/dev/video0): SetInputAndFormat(1, NTSC) (v4l v2) input_switch: 0 mode_switch: 1
