Help with 2nd TV -Tuner
I setup my HTPC and went with the KWorld Hybrid TV Stick UB445-U2 USB 2.0 Interface can be looked up at KWorld UB445-U2 Video Device - Newegg.com
That worked fine of course I could only get locals and a few other channels. Decided that it just wasn't enough and purchased the HD Homerun Prime 3 tuner Cable card device.
The USB Tuner was already setup in Windows media center and working great then connected the HD Homerun and that as well went with no issues getting all channels.
The issue i'm having is I can record on all 3 tuners on the HD Homerun but can no longer use the USB Tuner for local recordings at same time as the 3 tuners are recording.Keeps saying I must cancel one of HD Homerun tuners.
I'm connected using Verion FioS only channels that were copy once flagged were HBO & MAX. After getting cable card activated all was smoothed out all Premium channels are working great.
I just need some help getting the USB Tuner back in the loop and working as 4th recording device for locals only.

Thanks for replies. Issue is When I start to add tuners it says found 4 but will only configure HDHomerun tuners. It says that the USB TV Tuner isn't getting any signal."Please check cable."
If I unplug HD Homerun it then finds signal just fine for USB HDTuner. But then I no longer am able to use the HDHomerun because it reconfigured it for the USB HDTV Tuner.
Been troubleshooting off and on for awhile still have not found a solution.
