Found two LVDS low registers instead of one! (ID: 176067)

I am using an instance of the ALTLVDS_Rx mega function. When I compile my VHDL, I receive the following error:

Error (176067): Found two LVDS low registers instead of one!
Error (176066): Found two LVDS high registers instead of one!
Info (171121): Fitter preparation operations ending: elapsed time is 00:00:01
Error (171000): Can't fit design in device

What does the above error message mean? What is causing it? How do I get around it?

The matter has been resolved. Evidently Altera does not allow a single LVDS pair to drive two SERDES receivers. When such a thing happens the above listed errors are thrown.

What are your IP parameters?  How are you adding the IP into the design?  What are your I/O assignments in the Pin Planner?  More detail needed here.

ALTLVDS_RX unit used. Signals - RESET, SIG_IN, CLOCK, SIG_VECTOR_OUT.

IO ASSIGNMENT: INPUT SIGNAL (SIG_IN) and CLOCK assigned as an LVDS pair using pin planner. Reset is a an asynchronous signal brought in by means of a clock pin/clock network.
