OK, the drivers are loaded.

Wrong devices to use if you have a Hauppauge PVR card.

Mike@P-733-Lin:/dev> ll video*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 6 2009-01-08 05:10 video -> video0
crw-rw----+ 1 root video 81, 0 2009-01-08 05:10 video0
crw-rw----+ 1 root video 81, 1 2009-01-08 05:10 video1
crw-rw----+ 1 root video 81, 24 2009-01-08 05:10 video24
crw-rw----+ 1 root video 81, 32 2009-01-08 05:10 video32

The device to access it should be either be video0 or video1 (one of
them is you webcam- most likely it is video1 if you use a usb
webcam). By any chance you forgot to put yourself in the video group?
What happened if you do:

,----
| mplayer /dev/video0
| mplayer /dev/video1
`----
