It was the USB Hub!

Using a straight through USB extension works with all my fobs, with a
cheapo 4-way hub the device is reported to the system, but no audio
comes through.

So now I'm feeling silly, because I'm sure I checked it without the
hub at some point.

Anyway, I thought I'd feed back what the eventual resolution was - and
I rebuilt my OS for nothing!
