Yes.  The TCL 2002N tuner is not yet supported by the tuner module in 
the Linux kernel (your tuner module does not have a type 50 tuner, so 
setting the tuner type fails).  Therefore, you'll have to ensure you're 
using an updated version of the kernel's tuner module.  Today, Axel 
released an RPM of the latest video4linux snapshot that has support for 
the tuner (see http://www.poptix.net/ivtv/Sep-2004/msg00737.html ).  The 
initial version of this package has an incorrect value which will cause 
the tuner to function improperly, but Axel will be updating the package 
very soon.  You can go ahead and try updating your v4l as described in 
Axel's message, and if you get snow, you'll know it hasn't been 
updated.  If you prefer, you can wait until tomorrow, and it will 
probably be updated.

BTW, I saw your other post (using tuner 9), but you'll still want to 
update so you can use type 50.  With tuner 9, you'll have problems with 
some channels (mainly in the mid-range--those between 137.25MHz and 
172MHz (17-21) and those between 385.25MHz and 448MHz (50-63)) if using 
cable TV; for OTA, you won't notice a difference, but you might as well 
use the correct definition).
