    I think this is because you need to update your version of udev.

    In FC3, the MAKEDEV-DVB.sh method has been superceded by using the udev
    system. i.e., FC3 has switched from a static /dev/ directory to one that
    is dynamically managed via udev. This allows device nodes to be 
created on
    demand as drivers are loaded.

    For more information on udev, refer to the udev(8) man page and the
    following link: http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/udev/

    Hmm, not sure why this is happening, I think you want to ensure your
    dvb apps match your driver and that you have a fairly consistent set
    of up-to-date system RPMs overall.

    The A800 works pretty well for me... with the exception of mythtv
    of course ;^)

    Cheers,

    Doug
