Unhappy Can't configure external tuner

I'm trying to setup Sage to use my external tuner (Comcast DTA DC50X) with my USBUIRT. I have the DTA going into the analog input on my Hauppauge 1600 card, and can get to the point where it asks for the external channel to use. Then it hangs. I followed the following steps:
1. Add tuner (Hauppauge WinTV 418 Videocapture)
2. Select TV Tuner, which is set to channel 3. While that preview runs, I can change the channels on the DTA and the preview changes to match, so I know the right signal is getting to the right place.
3. Use Cable/Sattelite tuner
4. Enter channel 3 in the "enter rf" dialog
and then it hangs.

I haven't even gotten to the usbuirt setup, which I understand can be tricky for the DTAs. It just won't let me finish the setup.
Server: Windows 8.1 4gb RAM; 4TB SATA + others. Homebrew quad core AMD. Inputs: Haup. 980, 850 & 950Q on ATSC; Haup 1600 on ATSC & Comcast 2 DTAs with USBUIRT for NTSC. Haup 1800 on ATSC. HDHR Dual (ATSC). Sage 9.22 64 bit.
