This is breakage in MythTV.  It was trying to open /dev/cxm0 for
writing.  I committed a fix recently.  Do you have a file
files/patch-libs-libmythtv-cardutil.cpp in your port?

If you still have problems, try:

  # chmod 666 /dev/cxm0

I'll look at the rest of this thread later.  It would really help if
you people would trim your replies.
