Yup - it is plugged in, and the links in /dev/mythser show up fine.
Since I've been recording my TV shows on the correct channels I have
to assume the devices are working fine too.

Hmm - this has been stable for me for years, compared to just using
/dev/ttyUSBn.

In any case, I have no idea why nothing shows up in /dev/serial.  The
only device nodes I can find for serial are /dev/ttyUSBn and
/dev/mythser/n (the latter being from my own rules).
