No.  The tveeprom module is only used to autodetect the card's hardware, 
so if autodetection works right, you're good to go.  The IvyTV version 
of tveeprom was created specifically to deal with all the new hardware 
changes--especially those brought about by the introduction of the 
PVR-150 and PVR-500 cards.  The tveeprom in recent versions of the Linux 
kernel has very good support for PVR-250/350's.
