Thank you Crazycat, as you said we noticed it has used by a process which has been installed by the old administrator of server.

sorry to warm up this topic, but i got the same error and i think i did another mistake.
I only get positive feedback fron lsdvb if i am logged in as root. as admin i get the mentioned above error.
looks for me like a permission error.

Not sure of your environment but see the group of the /dev device like
crw-rw---- 1 root video 212, 0 Mar 18 01:45 demux

it is 'video' here, so your user needs to belong to that group.

Actually it is the following permission on /dev/dvb

drwxr-xr-x. 6 root root 120 Jul 7 12:57 dvb

Yesterday all was well until I did a reboot.. and now for any user is says "Open frontend0 failed". I will try to stop any process (like tvheadend) and cheack again..
