Bug#519884: Searches for the device in the wrong place
If I load the ivtv module I got the devices /dev/videoX and /dev/vbiX and /dev/v4l/by-path/<Symlinks to /dev/videoX>
As soon as the directory /dev/v4l exists, nxtvepg does ignore the devices under /dev and refuses to start as it thinks the video devices have to be beneath /dev/v4l.
The problem is solved at least in the latest upstream version nxtvepg 2.8.1.
So please update this very old debian package.
