Problems with USB tuners

I have bought and installed several ATSC USB tuners. All of them work fine when used by the Total Media program. However, I cannot get them to work with SageTV. I have made KWorld and Hauppauge tuners work properly with SageTV but the Hauppauge unit seems to have a fairly short lifetime before becoming degraded and the KWorld units last much longer but eventually die and they are no longer available to buy.

The two of the three problem ATSC tuners don't have a clear name on them but they are white and have "ATSC TV Stick" written on them. The third is the same shape but is black, has "MyGica A681" and has some small vent holes on one side. I have attached a picture of the tuners. When connected to SageTV, all three find the available channels but cannot generate a signal.

Anybody have any experiences like this and is there a way to fix it.

Not a direct answer to your question but I far prefer the HDHR to USB tuners. It isn't dependent on specific hardware so you can use the tuner from multiple SageTV servers running in your house and you can also directly watch LiveTV from the HDHR app - if you so desire. Plus they are easy to use in VMs or dockers as you don't have to worry about passthrough of devices to a VM. And generally the HDHRs have two or more tuners. If you don't want to spend too much money. You can buy older used ones very cheaply on eBay
New Server - Sage9 on unRAID 2xHD-PVR, HDHR for OTA
Old Server - Sage7 on Win7Pro-i660CPU with 4.6TB, HD-PVR, HDHR OTA, HVR-1850 OTA
Clients - 2xHD-300, 8xHD-200 Extenders, Client+2xPlaceshifter and a WHS which acts as a backup Sage server
