iSight camera stops working in Skype or iChat after installing eyetv hybrid

I just installed eyetv hybrid and after that I could not use my integrated iSight camera (in my Mac Book Pro) with Skype or iChat. They would simply say: No camera connected.

Fixing this:

However, starting Photo Booth once fixed this issue. After starting Photo Boot (which showed that the iSight camera works) and just closing it Skype and iChat video worked again. I assume that the eyetv installation just disabled the existing video devices and forgot to insert them again and that Photo Booth does a better initialization than Skype or iChat.

Of course I assume a reboot would fix this as well, but who likes rebooting all the time. After all why do I have a Mac. :-)
