Questions and issues regarding installation of 2nd HD Tuner

Hi all,

I have a stable Sage system with a Fusion3 tuner which I've been running for a couple a months now. Recently I wanted to add a second HD Tuner so I bought a VBOX Cat's Eye USB-A-3560 ATSC card. I haven't had any luck getting the two to work together. Here's what I've tried and done so far.

First, I installed the Vbox and its drivers. No apparent issues during installation. I load up Sage and go to sources and click add a source. The Vbox is present and I select it, select Digital TV tuner and proceed. I set up everything the same way as my Fusion card, which is set up under the Los Angeles Digital Broadcast for the EPG. I select the same for the Vbox and go to try to record two shows.

I go into the EPG and hit record on two shows. The Fusion actually records while the Vbox doesn't. While the Vbox says its recording, the file never get any bigger and i can't view the program.

Frustrated, I uninstall Sage and begin the reinstallation. I select the Vbox for my tuner first and again select the Los Angeles Digtal Broadcast. I search for available channels (as Sage come up with a few of the Local subchannels) and finish source setup for the Vbox. At this point, the Vbox works without issue. I then go to add the Fusion 3 as a Source but, after installation, I run into the same issue... this time the Vbox works but the Fusion refuse to record.

At this point, I feel like this . I pretty much give up as I have to have the TV working for the wife. Is there something I'm missing in the installation that is causing this. My gut tells me I have some issue with the guide, as I'm searching for available channels after source setup. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
