Unable to watch Live TV on HD300

I am having an issue with my SageTV server. I have 3 HD300's, 2 Version 7 Clients, and two Laptops with a Version 7 Placeshifter Client Installed. The server has 3 tuners, (2 Digital OTA and 1 HDPVR connected to a DirecTV receiver set at 720p). Using any of the HD300's I have no issues watching live TV from either Digital tuners but if I try and watch live TV from the HDPVR all I get is a Black Screen. Further troubleshooting with my laptop and a Placeshifter client I did find one other thing. Using the laptop on the internal network while watching the HDPVR I only get about 2/3 of the top left part of the screen, Digital OTA tuner works fine. If I take that same laptop and try the same test remotely I get the entire picture. It has to be somewhere an issue with the resolution, 720p internally and 480i externally. I primarily use my SageTV client to watch programs internally so I am not sure how long this has been an issue. If the program is recorded and I go back and watch it on the HD300, it plays normally. Any help finding where I have gone wrong with a setting would be greatly appreciated.

After more than a week of troubleshooting I finally broke down and rebuilt my SageTV Server. It had been a while since I done that. So far so good. Things seem to be working again.
