Sagetv v9.2.2 64-bit: HDHR/OTA tuners find Channels but Sagetv Doesn't

After a fresh install of both Windows 10 and Sagetv 64-bit v9.2.2, Sagetv video capture devices/HDHR tuners cannot find channels after scanning, though the HDHR GUI/viewer can. Background:

Sagetv v9 32-bit was originally installed and working great on Windows 7 until an unrecoverable HDD crash. Windows 10 was installed on a new SSD. The latest SiliconDust HDHR software was downloaded/installed and OTA channels were successfully scanned and viewable.

Sagetv 64-bit v9.2 was then installed, initially in C:\Program Files (but later uninstalled, and re-installed in C:\). Sagetv video capture/HDHR tuners were properly configured and scanned, but no channels were found. I then started digging around on the forum.

I found a couple hopeful threads, one resolving a no-channel issue with Win10 UAC and Virtual Store file storage, and another involving .SCN files not being found for the same UAC reason. To avoid UAC complications, I decided to un-install and re-install Sagetv as Administrator in C:\ root after disabling UAC in Win10 and disabling Webroot virus s/w. Still no luck.

(After reinstalling in C:\ root, Sagetv couldn't find the capture devices/tuners at all. After deleting the Sagetv folder in C:\Program Files left behind from the uninstall, Sagetv then found the tuners and configuration went smoothly, but again, channel scanning found nothing.)

I'm out of ideas.

Currently, SiliconDust HDHR tuner s/w is installed in C:\Program Files and works fine. Sagetv v9.2 is installed in C:\, with capture devices proper set up with Schedules Direct for OTA channels. Windows 10 UAC and Webroot are presently disabled. I can view OTA channels through the HDHR GUI, but a Sagetv channel scan finds none of them.

Thanks in advance for any help with this issue.
