For a sufficiently new version of sane-backends all that should be
needed is adding
usb 0x04b8 0x0807
to your epson.conf. Alternatively, you can add an entry for it in
epson_usb.c and recompile. That would make the addition to epson.conf
superfluous. You should at least be able to scan, other functionality
may not be fully supported.

I doubt the v4l backend (using your TV-card) will work.
Hope this helps,
