Depends. Did you actually want all three enabled, or just the mceusb
one? I'd set up just that one if you only need one receiver and one
transmitter, since it can do everything in a single device for you and
the driver has no known deficiencies, etc. That what it sounds like
you've set up, anyway. When you say "none of them do anything", what
exactly do you mean? And what exactly are you expecting them to do? :)
