I have tirelessly been trying to setup mythtv but this card will not open. After checking out this link I entered lspci -vvnn and got this:

05:00.0 Multimedia video controller [0400]: Conexant Systems, Inc. CX23887/8 PCIe Broadcast Audio and Video Decoder with 3D Comb [14f1:8880] (rev 04)
Subsystem: Hauppauge computer works Inc. Device [0070:2a18]
Control: I/O- Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR- FastB2B- DisINTx-
Status: Cap+ 66MHz- UDF- FastB2B- ParErr- DEVSEL=fast >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR- INTx-
Latency: 0, Cache Line Size: 64 bytes
Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 19
Region 0: Memory at fe800000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=2M]
Capabilities: <access denied>
Kernel driver in use: cx23885

Notice how mine says access denied under "Capabilities"? I have no idea how to correct this. Also I have noticed that most people use /dev/dvb/adapter0/video0 or /dev/video0 for their source when setting up mythtv but I don't see any file under dev that makes sense. Is this where the driver is stored? I posted this question on ubuntuforums and mythtv forums but have not gotten an answer. Please help.
