5500 Card Dead?

I have been happily using my pcHDTV 5500 card for over a year in my MythTV box.

Suddenly it has stopped working, and MythTV says "Failed to open frontend" when trying to access the card. When booting, the system reports the following messages (see below) and no /dev/dvb directory is created.

Does anybody know of anything I can try next, or is it time to order a new card?

I ordered a new pcHDTV 5500 card, and the replacement works perfectly without any changes to the system. So, for any others that see this message, it may mean that your card is dead like mine was.
