This firmware is for a different card (Air2PC 2nd gen based on nxt2002, 
you have the 1st gen). I don't know if you need a different firmware for 
your card. Some cards don't need any.

Yes. You don't have nxt chip.

Install dvb-apps package and run

scandvb -U /usr/share/dvb-apps/atsc/us-ATSC-center-frequencies-8VSB

It will spew out channels.conf contents at the end.
