This wasn't what he was asking about, though.  He was asking about his
channels on his Prime.  He wasn't asking if the Prime would be
maintaining the channels for his other devices.

Why would you want to use the same source?  The reason most (all)
Prime purchasers will buy it is because it gives them more programming
than a regular ClearQAM tuner.  Therefore they *can't* use the same
video source.  They have different capabilities.

And who cares how many sources you have, anyway?
