I recently acquired a Hauppauge wintv-hvr-1250 PCIe ATSC tuner card and have 
compiled/installed the latest v4l-dvb drivers ok. 

(BTW, I'm using an ABIT AN-M2HD motherboard with an AMD 4000+ cpu) 

I'm not sure which modules are required, but when I load the cx23885 module 
(via /sbin/modprobe cx23885), I get an error on the tveeprom header.  dmesg 

CORE cx23885[0]: subsystem: 0070:7911, board: Hauppauge WinTV-HVR1250

I'm concerned about the tveeprom message  -- are there any other modules I 
need to load for this board?  Is there any firmware I'm missing?
