I have wintv v8.5 installed on my win10 pc. it has ran ok for me for some time now but, just recently, I have lost a couple of channels and I cannot get them back.

I've scanned for channels and it has found everything on my aerial and, for the most part, plays everything (I'm guessing - I haven't checked them all) except ITV and Channel4.

whenever I select those channels, it just displays a black screen. no sound, no picture.

why might that be and how can it be fixed?

I've just taken this screencap. that's wintv open and that's UTV but, as you can see, it hasn't fully displayed. that's actually more than what I was getting before (just a black screen).

uh, hold on....an error box has just popped up. says "wintv has stopped working". I have to close the prog now.

what is wrong!

Now that you have updated, remove the stick, restart the computer. When the computer comes up, plug the stick back in and reconfigure it.
