[linux-dvb] Kaffeine problem, it "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. Kaffeine shows the
DVB cards when I go to DVB settings, but the DVB icon remains dim and

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.  DVB can be watched/recorded on the same system using Xine and Klear
and cards can be tzap'ped and szap'ped.

 Here is the output from the terminal:
Any advice?
