Strange... I've not noticed any problems with three devices on the occasions
when I've started VDR with all three present; OTOH, they're all DVB-T, though
one's connected via USB.

Ignore the outputs. You should connect both inputs to an amplifier; tune to
and monitor one of the QAM64 muxes to check that the wiring is good.
(It's possible that you may be able to get away with a splitter, but you'd
need to be close to the transmitter or have a good aerial.)
