I believe I installed version 4.95.0 (but being a binary file it's hard to confirm). Should they match, Can I upgrade the device or should I downgrade the dvb_usb_af9015 file?

yes (you have old one), install the new one. Probably it does not matter 
but it is still better use newest available.

It (now) should work, even both tuners. You should use different devel-tree:

Using both tuners same time got it hangs, due to broken mutex lock for 
i2c-bus. I have been a little busy now to fix this, but probably in this 
week I got it fixed.

Thanx for help but I have got needed logs already.
