That's ok! This is your image data. If you want to save it, just use
"scanimage -d mustek:/dev/sg1 >image.pnm". Then you have scanned a
fulls size gray image and you can view it with e.g. "gimp image.pnm"
or "xv image.pnm". With "scanimage -d mustek:/dev/sg1 --help" you can
see all the options possible with your scanner.
Try xscanimage or xsane instead of scanimage. These may be easier.

Look at the man page (man sane-mustek). You can output debugging
information by setting the SANE_DEBUG_MUSTEK variable to a value > 0.
e.g. SANE_DEBUG_MUSTEK=5 scanimage -L. But that's not necessary as
your scanner seems to work now.

Looks like your TV card is not configured correctly (or not existent).

There doesn't seem to be any problem :-)
