Sound and DVB devices are supposed to be detected by hal. hal-resmgr
will take care of device permissions when you log in then. There is
no need to put users in the audio or video group. If permission
handling doesn't work for some reason please file a bug report,
assign it to me and attach the output of "lshal",
"/usr/sbin/hal-resmgr --list-all" and "/sbin/resmgr sessions".
