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

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
functionality.
