Problem going from cable to antenna (NTSC)

After thoroughly enjoying Sage TV with cable, due to having to make cutbacks, I cancelled the cable, and am relying on antenna to feed into Sage TV. I have come across a curious problem. I have an HVR-1600, which has both an NTSC and ATSC tuner on it. After getting rid of the cable, and reconfiguring the sources as antenna, I receive all of the ATSC digital channels that my antenna receives just fine, however, when I try to watch an analog NTSC channel coming in from the antenna, Sage TV simply hangs as it tries to tune the channel in. I get a black screen with the controls at the bottom, I get the little please wait circular animation, but, it never tunes in the signal. Again, this only applies to the analog NTSC channels, Sage TV displays the ATSC channels perfectly. I know I get the analog channels, as they come in fine when using WinTV, and also on my actual TV, so a hardware problem with the NTSC tuner isn't likely to be at fault. What could account for getting analog cable channels using the NTSC tuner just fine, but when switching to antenna, cause Sage TV to not display them?

Six months.

Anyway, try removing the ANALOG Tuner from Sage, exit, then reinstall it using the Antenna setting.
