Has anybody had any success with this USB tv stick using Windows 10?


The latest drivers I have found for Windows 7 and 8 are here


The stick does work on a Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit using either Total Media software version or Windows Media Centre, but not with 64-bit Windows 10 Home (both pre-anniversary edition and anniversary edition). The Total Media software and drivers appear to install correctly, but when scanning for the tv channels, I get the Blue Screen (kernal_security_check_failure error). I have previously tried Nextpvr on the pre-anniversary edition and got the same result.


Have been using USB2.0 ports too.


Nothing else causes a blue screen so I believe it's just incompatible drivers.


Anybody else had any experience/managed to find a solution?






edit: Added link for drivers

Don't know about your particular brand and model, but I've spent a *lot* of time trying to get TV sticks working. Obvious steps would be to try running in compatibility mode, trying generic drivers, and seeing whether you have any luck with something like Media Portal. Or if you're feeling particularly game, tvheadend on Linux.

G'day Cliff,


     Seems a lot of us are in the same boat.  I have a brand new DVB-S USB receiver that works on everything except Win 10, and also seen lots of similar complaints on the interwebby.


I asked the manufacturer (Taiwanese) about this and got a vague reply that a driver would be available "mid-year" tongue-out
