Does the WMC Service need to be running for tuner discovery? (Never mind)

Post by thedoomster »

I have the latest HDHOMERUN SW installed on Win 8.1 Pro with WMC 8.1 but cannot complete WMC tuner setup (for a Prime) because it is not found. I've checked all the network troubleshooting tips but noticed that the HDHOMERUN WMC Service is not running. If I try to start it it immediately shuts back down ("started but immediately stopped"). Is this the problem?

Update: Problem fixed itself. The thing about Win 8.1 - wait for all the updates! Yes, I am still running one WMC install on one new mini-pc I got to replace the old HP boat anchor. Still the flagship app for Live TV and DVR, it's still a great companion to HDHOMERUN.
