[linux-dvb] Kaffeine sees cards, but DVB icon remains dim, unusable.

Here is the output from the terminal when I run it from there.
I can't see anything wrong. Can anyone offer advice? I had it
working in my previous installation, but I don't remember what I
did. I had to reinstall because of hard drive update.

I have the same installation (Kubuntu Breezy) but with an upgraded
kernel. Tried before and after upgrading kernel. No difference. Kernel
was upgraded because of ATA/IDE problems with the new S-ATA hard drive. 
Only diff is now this kernel detects my KWorld DVB-T card as a 
Zarlink. Both before and after upgrade, sometimes only one card is detected
on startup.

Here is the output from the terminal:
