That's the right next step.  Just make sure you use the delete all 
button (not the delete all on this host button and don't just delete 
individually).  If that doesn't fix it, delete all capture cards (as 
above) and then delete all video sources (again with the delete all 
button) and reconfigure cards, video sources, inputs, and channels.
