Angry Sage TV 9 Client Does Not Work

Hi and thanks for listening to my issue.

I am no HTPC expert or SageTV expert but I am a happy SageTV user for about five years now. I have two computers, one acting as the SageTV server, and both acting as clients (I watch TV on both of them). So the first one runs the full SageTV app (and records all the shows), and the second one runs that SageTV Client app. I use the HD Homerun Dual as my networked TV tuner. All was good up until about two months ago when I was forced to upgrade to SageTV 9. As I'm sure you know, we all needed to do this upgrade so that we can start paying for guide listings with SchedulesDirect.

Once I upgraded the server and the client PC, the server PC worked, and the client PC did not. On the client PC, when I start the SageTV Client app, it starts up successfully, sees the server PC, but when it finally opens the app, besides there being an annoying weather plugin message that I can't seem to get rid of, there is no TV tab on the left. It shows Videos, , Setup, etc, but no TV. I've tried many different approaches to solving the problem. Reloaded Windows onto the machine, reloaded HD Homerun, reloaded Sage TV Client. Recently I discovered that loading the full version of SageTV on the client computer works, I can see the HD Homerun tuners, watch TV, but unfortunately this doesn't really solve my problem. I would have to leave both computers on, and record shows in two places. I really just want to record on one PC and be able to play the content from either PC. I have also tried running the full SageTV app on the client PC with the "-client" extension, but it yields the same "no TV" results as the SageTV client app.

Does anyone have any idea how to make my SageTV client setup work again?
