I don't know what you're doing wrong, but I am the creator of those 
scripts and I am one of the maintainers of video4linux cvs and I certify 
that the scripts are still present in video4linux cvs, and will remain 
so as long as the video4linux and dvb-kernel development trees exist 

Please, go back and ensure that you've read the directions in the howto 
properly.  It states that you must have downloaded both cvs trees to the 
same directory, cd into video4linux, and run 'scripts/merge-trees.sh' 
... The script is in the video4linux/scripts/ directory!  If you cannot 
see such a file, then the problem is a result of something that you're 
doing incorrectly.
