My Video Sources are Breeding

I went into Setup/Video Sources to make a modification to enabled channels and found many more 'sources' than I physically have. The R5000 source, a network encoder, was replicated many times. Shutting SageTV down and restarting the service got me back to the right number of sources - until I made a change to the channel lineup on any source. Going back to the source menu showed that four 'new' R5000 source copies had appeared. The same keeps happening every time a change is made - more copies appear.
This did not happen, as far as I know, when I originally upgraded from V7 to V9 and the install (32bit / Java 1.8.0_241) has been stable for some time.
So I decided it was time to upgrade to 64 bit and see if the problem vanished with newer software. I installed 64bit Took a long time to configure and I still have issues around the HDHR tuners and the USBUIRT to resolve. However it will load and run showing the set of tuners. However same issue as with 32bit. Changing anything causes replication of the R5000 entry.
Any ideas what might be causing this? I really want to solve it before proceeding further with the upgrade to 64bit. I have a system that is live and working - apart from the breeding sources issue.

I had experienced the same issue with my 4 R5000 units but it appeared to be only a display issue from what I could tell. I never noticed any operating issues other than it was confusing when editing channel lineups since the sources would multiply with each successive time I went back to edit. I am on 64bit but had same issue with 32 like you say.

I have since moved on from the R5000's to newer satellite boxes using HDMI and the openDCT plugin and don't experience this issue now.

Pilotguy7ca, please tell me more? What is your setup for using Satellite boxes with the Opendct plugin and HDMI?. I am still using Dish Network with R5000s and am very interested in knowing more of how your setup works. Thank you for any details you can provide.

Take a look at these threads for more details:

The HDMI capture device I have been using (BM3000), is significantly more reliable than my old R5000 mod ever was. The two downsides are a slight loss in quality due to re-encoding, and no 5.1 audio support.
