I have a receiver just like yours.  It appears to be working fine,
despite that message.

The one bit of trouble I ran into was that, for some reason, I have to
apply an offset to some frequencies, but not all, when tuning.  MythTV
handles this, but I suspect that it might get confused if other cards
without this quirk were present.
