I tried to uninstall Beta3 as instructed. The uninstall process took forever, lots of HDD activity, finally finished but I still have DVICO Fusion HDTV in my add/remove programs list. Rebooted and tried the uninstall again. Same behavior, and DVICO still in the programs list.
Even though the mangled-English problem description on the DVICO Web site does not make sense, I download and run the Uninstallation.reg file. Presumably this cleans up the registry if the uninstall program fails. After running it, the DVICO entry in the programs list is indeed gone, but now I have three unnamed (blank) entries at the top of the list.
Fearing disaster, I install RC1 anyway. I observe that there is now only one non-certified driver, as some others have already noted. The install goes more smoothly (only one reboot needed; no weird double driver install as with all the previous versions).
After the program's up and running, I try to tune a weak OTA digital channel, as a test. The program crashes. I restart it and try to do a scan for digital QAM channels, "all modulation types." After a few minutes of scanning, the program crashes.
I'm going to restore my HDD image with Beta3 on it. "Release candidate?" You gotta be kidding.
