Hi, can I have some help scanning for tv channels. in the drop down bar to pick my location there is no Canada option and when I scan I get no channels. I use windows 7 x64 and my tuner is a usb ( ATSC UB435-Q2 V2 )
thank you.

    Hello and welcome cool beans :)

    So you've got an aerial, and you're scanning for over-the-air channels, yes?
    Please could you post your log files:
    1. Open TV Server configuration.
    2. Click "open log directory" in the top left corner.
    3. Zip up the files you find there and attach/post the zip file here.

    here is the zip :)

    Thanks for the log files (y)

    tried aerial and cable tv...
    This doesn't really answer my question. :)
    What do you actually have access to?
    In other words: do you have a satellite dish, aerial, or cable connection?
    If you know, it would also help if you could say whether the signal is analog or digital.

    From the log files it looks like the tuner shows as ATSC and DVB-C.
    This doesn't seem right because DVB-C is a European cable TV standard, not used in Canada.
    I recommend you visit KWorld's website and download + install the latest drivers (from February this year):
    http://global.kworld-global.com/main/support_down.aspx?mnuid=1255&modid=

    (I think you'd select: category = ALL, series = ATSC and product = USB ATSC TV Stick (UB435-Q))


    If anything, I'd expect you'd use the ATSC tuner.
    From there we need to know whether you have cable or over-the-air (terrestrial) TV.
    For cable you'd tick the "tune clear QAM instead of ATSC"; for over-the-air you'd leave that unticked.
    If you have cable, use the QAM Standard frequency plan.

    Finally, I see you found the "preferred network provider setting" and "when card enters idle state..." settings.
    Those are good things to try, though I note the recommended values are Generic and stop. Looks like you're trying ATSC (which is fine) and pause (which is really not recommended for you at this stage).

    Well, it's not a problem to add extension exclude list to the MediaInfo service. Anyway, if the MediaInfo is not available, then the video refresh rate(FPS) for the adapater cannot be determined. There is alternate way how to get the fps(from videopin). It seems to be working (at least for my tested wtv file) and can be used as...

    Hi, yes, you are right. The official x64 1.32 is buggy. You can try a new installers from this post if you like.

    I have not seen that one but it is possible that after installing the 1.32 x86 version that I scanned and tested TV before installing the x64, but not sure it that would make any difference! I am currently testing an improved version but at this point it is still not clear how or when a fixed x64 version will be available.
