    as title said. so i have ten up and running 64 bit on my desktop.my desktop has a tuner card. i was able to find the tuner drivers and it shows fully installed . but i have no way to access the tuner. Anyone know a alternative? or is there a glimmer of hope ms will add it eventually. but from what i read online. i don't think that's going to happen. my old compliant with 10.

    Use Media Player Classic, assuming you have drivers for your tuner that will work in Win 10.

    I've tried Kodi as well. It did recognize my tuner, but I had to install drivers separately for it. And the Kodi interface seems weird and kind of confusing to me.

    Are there any screenshots of Jr River Media Center anywhere?
