udev: no /dvb/adapter... directories created

I am running the Mepis 6.5 distribution, kernel 2.6.15-27-desktop64-smp, althlon 64 bit, nvidia chipset My HD-3000 card is detected and I am able to see regular NTSC signals from it. However, I have not been able to get the ATSC part working.

I put the firmware into /lib/firmware
I removed all cx88_blackbird modules.
I loaded all of the cx88_dvb modules:

root@3[~]# modprobe -v cx88_dvb
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.15-27-desktop64-smp/kernel/drivers/media/dvb/frontends/dvb-pll.ko
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.15-27-desktop64-smp/kernel/drivers/media/dvb/frontends/cx22702.ko
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.15-27-desktop64-smp/kernel/drivers/media/dvb/frontends/lgdt330x.ko
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.15-27-desktop64-smp/kernel/drivers/media/dvb/frontends/nxt200x.ko
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.15-27-desktop64-smp/kernel/drivers/media/video/video-buf.ko
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.15-27-desktop64-smp/kernel/drivers/media/dvb/dvb-core/dvb-core.ko

insmod /lib/modules/2.6.15-27-desktop64-smp/kernel/drivers/media/video/cx88/cx8802.ko
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.15-27-desktop64-smp/kernel/drivers/media/video/cx88/cx88-dvb.ko

After doing this, I look into the /dev directory and see that the dvb/adapter... directories are not created. I searched the internet and realized that udev may be the problem, or the firmware is not getting loaded properly. I read about one solution which involves compiling "udev_run_hotplugd" from the udev" extras" source directory and putting it into /sbin and inserting a line in the /etc/udev/rules.d/ directory to call it. I do not understand why that would be necessary, if udev replaces hotplug. I tried it anyway, but it didn't work. Pehaps that's because I don't have hotplug installed, and if I did, the hotplug rules probably aren't set up properly anyway. Then I read some articles about adding some udev rules with KERNEL='dvb*', etc. to create the device nodes. I followed those instructions, and still no luck.

My distrubution by default comes with some rules for determining the device nodes: In /etc/udev/rules.d/20-names.rules
# Video devices, group dvb devices under /dev/dvb
SUBSYSTEM!="dvb", GOTO="dvb_end"
IMPORT{program}="/lib/udev/dvb_device_name --export %k"
ENV{DVB_ADAPTER}=="?*", ENV{DVB_DEV}=="?*", \

I looked in the /proc/devices directory and discovered that the name is in caps, hevever, and I don't know if this is relevant or not:

in /proc/devices:
128 ptm
136 pts
171 ieee1394
180 usb
189 usb_device
195 nvidia
212 DVB

is the kernel subsystem name DVB instead of dvb?

Does anybody know how to get udev to create these device nodes when the HD-3000 drivers are loaded, load the firmware, and link the device to the proper device nodes?

Any help is appreciated.
