Can someone running FreeBSD 8.2-RC1 with more than one or external USB webcam 
or DVB-XXX devices verify the following:

1) Install /usr/ports/multimedia/webcamd

2) Reboot

3) Check that character devices are created for your device(s) under /dev

/dev/videoX for webcams

/dev/dvb/adapterX for DVB devices

3) HAL should show your device.

lshal | grep -i video
lshal | grep -i dvb

4) Hot replug the USB plug of your USB webcam/DVB device, perform checks 1,2 
and 3. If same result everything is OK.
