Did you run the cable advisor and update playready?

I did run Digital Cable Advisor, which went fine. When I tried to update PlayReady, I received a message that WMC could not connect to the internet. Is there some sort of permission that I have to configure for WMC to communicate? Even if I never touched Digital Cable Advisor or PlayReady, that shouldn't affect the OTA tuners, correct?

There is a download to install the latest playready, you can find it on Gary's EPG123 site.

OTA's should work fine without PlayReady.

You are receiving OTA in the HDhomerun APP?

Yes, I receive OTA (and CableCard) in the HDHomerun app. I have installed PlayReady 1.3.10 from Gary's GitHub page. All tuners are found by WMC, but no channels are detected.

hmmm..is media player installed?

aslo, do you have a tv or streaming device with DLNA? if so, do the OTA tuners (assuming they are either networked based, or bridged) work there?

Yes, Windows Media Player came with Windows 10.

I can watch channels from all tuners fine on my Windows 7 WMC and in the HDHomerun app on my W10 laptop. It is only WMC in the W10 computer that found all tuners but cannot detect channels.

You may need to install older HDHR drivers for Win10 1511. Search the web for hdhomerun_windows_20150826.exe which may work for you.

EDIT: But you will probably still fail with the Primes due to the PlayReady server/service being down.

I already have the hdhomerun_windows_20150826.exe installed. Even without the HDHomeRun Prime, I still have to figure out why the OTA channels are being detected by WMC. Thanks for the reply.
