Can I infer that you have an "older" PVR500 card?

I believe the "new" PVR500 cards are not yet supported by the stock
kernel tveeprom modules. The IVTV kernel log will report the following
for a "new" PVR500 card:

	tveeprom 3-0050: tuner model is Samsung TCPN 2121P30A (idx 87, type 4)


	tuner 3-0061: tuner type not set

[Repeat messages for "tveeprom 4-0050" and "tuner 4-0061".]

Unfortunately, I have a newer Samsung PVR500, which means I think I
need to either wait, or use the ivtv-0.5.x drivers ...
