good day everyone. there is a problem with creating symlink for video device after reboot. i've got 2 video devices webcam and pci tvtuner. i've wrote rules conf like this

SUBSYSTEM=="video4linux", ATTRS{idVendor}=="5986", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0105", GROUP="video",SYMLINK+="webcam0"
SUBSYSTEM=="video4linux", ATTRS{vendor}=="0x1131", ATTRS{device}=="0x7134", GROUP="video", SYMLINK+="beholder0"
then when i reboot the system symlink for webcam is created but for the tuner doesn't and when i test the rule conf with

udevadm test /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:04.0/0000:01:06.0/video4linux/video1

symlink for tuner is creating. where is my mistake?

I solved my problem by rewriting the rule for the tuner like this:

KERNEL=="video*",ATTRS{vendor}=="0x1131", ATTRS{device}=="0x7134", GROUP="video", SYMLINK+="beholder0"
