We had some trouble with FC2 and Osprey and WinTV cards.  It seemed that 
when we added/removed cards the permissions for the video devices were set to:

This caused various problems.  The solution was to go into 

and change:

<console>  0600 <v4l>        0600 root
<console>  0666 <v4l>        0600 root

to keep the permissions as we want them.

hope this helps
