TV card, no sound, eeprom invalid, no eeprom present (err=-121)

I have a Norwood Micro PCI TV tuner (conexant cx23880).
I'm running PCLinuxOS. I can view channels in xawtv and tvtime, but have no sound I also get different messeges when I dmesg

cx2388x v4l2 driver version 0.0.4 loaded
PCI: Found IRQ 3 for device 0000:00:0a.0
PCI: Sharing IRQ 3 with 0000:00:02.7
cx88[0]: subsystem: 0000:0000, board: Leadtek Winfast 2000XP Expert [card=5,insmod option]
tuner 0-0060: chip found @ 0xc0 (cx88[0])
tuner 0-0060: type set to 44 (Philips 4 in 1 (ATI TV Wonder Pro/Conexant))
tveeprom(cx88xx internal): Huh, no eeprom present (err=-121)?
cx88[0]: Leadtek eeprom invalid.

cx88[0]: registered IR remote control

videodev 6848 4 cx8800,cx88xx,bttv
dm_mod 48892 0
sata_vsc 4932 0

sometimes I get:
tuner 0-0060: Tv freq (268435455.93) out of range
after channel 60 i get nothing when i should have almost 20 channels to go.
I'm using card=5 tuner=44 If use any thing else I get nothing.

Also PCLinuxOS control center will not allow me to configure the card. after I make changes to the "Area" and the "User" feilds Control center starts scanning for channels, abruptly stops and closes the tv card configure window. When I open it back up no changes were made.

Same soundless boat

I'm in the same boat. I get it to work in WinXP, i checked that the line in volume is on and at a good volume, but still, nothing. Any help will be great. I thank you for reading my post.
