Can no no longer add tuners into WMC

I have a HDHomeRun Prime that I watch TV through several Xbox 360s via Windows 8.1 WMC. It has worked well for several years, with minor issues. About once every 3 or 4 months, WMC would just loose the tuners. It would usually be a 15-20 minute ordeal to reinstall the tuners, but the system would be fine for another 3 or 4 months. Just lost the tuners again, and I can no longer add them back in. WMC finds that I have 3 HDHomeRun tuners, but when in click next to add them back in, it hangs for several minutes, then says that while the system is digital cable ready, there are no cablecard devices. If I click back and try to add them back in again, eventually, WMC sees the 3 tuners and adds them, but when I reopen WMC, no tuners.

I have rebooted numerous times; tried to repair the installation; completely uninstalled and reinstalled the HD software; and I've even swapped out routers. I have had to add back in the tuners so many times, it is second nature to me, but this time, the tuners just won't get recognized. I've been trying for the last three hours. In addition, the HDHomeRun app on that installation of Windows, doesn't work correctly. Every channel produces a green screen and also gives me errors concerning no DVR. HDHomeRun works fine on other Windows installations and Xbox Ones. Any help would be appreciated.
