Don't worry about the tveeprom error message -- we know why it is
happening, and a fix will probably be committed for it relatively

For your card, the error has absolutely no influence on the operation
of the device.  The linux driver currently only supports ATSC / QAM
digital tv on your board, you do not need any firmware for this
