For the sake of the archives, I finally got it working. Jose Alberto Reguero was kind enough to tell me, that the above error message is simply caused by the CAM being in sleep-mode. When an application needs it, the CAM *should* wake up and initialize successfully. In my case it didn't on multiple test setups, but it works now on my test system with the following software: - A daily build of Ubuntu 12.04 (~alpha2) which includes a 3.2 kernel. - A daily build of MythTV pre0.25. - A quick workaround with hard links added to /etc/rc.local to make up for the non-existing /dev/dvb/adapter0/*1 devices on the combined DVB-C/T tuner: ln -s /dev/dvb/adapter0/ca0 /dev/dvb/adapter0/ca1 ln -s /dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0 /dev/dvb/adapter0/demux1 ln -s /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0 /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr1 ln -s /dev/dvb/adapter0/net0 /dev/dvb/adapter0/net1 With this setup, the CAM initializes correctly once the MythTV backend is started on bootup.
