Thanks, as always, for your responses, guys.

They all sound perfectly reasonable. The weird thing is that the card
and Kaffeine are both clearly working - it scans, finds, and locks some
channels when I select "Canberra, Black Mountain" from the presets list
and  then run a scan. I tried running a full scan across the tuning
range, using all the available offsets and it still only brough in SBS

Matt's comments about possible conflicts between the Black Mountain and
Tuggeranong Hill transmissions sound reasonable, but then why is it
working in Xubuntu? [Hums the theme to X Files.]

I changed completely. (Actually, I just swapped HDDs - I have a small
collection with various OSs.) Still, it might be worth copying the
tuning data from the Xubuntu disk to the Kubuntu disk to see what

That would make sense - there's no other reason I can think of for the
fact that SBS is the sole common factor!

I'll play around on the weekend and see what happens.
