Today I install WMC 8.8.1 on Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17661. I do it exactly as described in Readme.txt, removing previous installation first. It works ok. Actually, I have a problem with TV settings, but I think the reason is my TV system config, not exact Windows version.

I have cable TV box (Sagemcom UHD 88) connected by Composite cable to PCI TV tuner (Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1110) in my computer. Hauppauge is alco connected with DVB-T antenna, so I can view some TV channels from the air (of course much better idea is to watch hundreds of channel from TV Box). In the WMC settings procedure, if I choose that I have TV box, I got a list of available inputs. I can choose Composite input and then I got a small windows with proper TV preview screen. That's OK, but in the next step WMC try to set IR remote, find none and only further option is to retry or quit installation. Is it possible to skip this step? I dont need a IR remote, this computer is my desktop.

If I choose in WMC options "antenna" instead of "Tv box" system fins some channels from the air. But there's no possibility (or I don't know how) to change signal source to Composite input.

Is there any solution of this problem?
