Answers to the Frequently Asked Questions:

What can I do if myTV shows an error message, something like "10061 - Pins cannot be connected"?

If you get an error message (it can be something else, not only 10061), take these steps: close the running instance of myTV, then start it up again, but this time as administrator. How? Right mouse click on the myTV icon, and in the local menu select "Run as Administrator".

Detailed info about this error: When it says the pins cannot be connected it isn't about your PIN code, at all. These are the audio and video pins (connectors) of the software. Why can't they be connected? Because the software cannot check your system settings properly. It needs access to your system to be able to follow up the hardware changes (e.g.: your audio device can be changed by other programs). Well, when you are using a Windows account with limited access (guest account or a simple user account), the necessary info is not available for myTV. So you need to utilize the administrator account of your system. It is a built-in account in every Windows version. (You probably did not add a password to this Windows account, but if you did, you should know it.)

If it does not solve your problem, our service is probably down (e.g. we are restarting our servers). Try again in a few minutes.

If you are starting myTV as Administrator, but it still says "Pins cannot be connected", you need to reinstall myTV. (You probably made changes with the audio device of your computer.)

Step 1) Uninstall myTV.
Step 2) Delete the remaining *.ini files from the C:\Program Files (x86)\myTV\ folder.
Step 3) Download the latest version of myTV:
Step 4) Install it.
Step 5) Start it as Administrator.
Step 6) Enter your personal details.
Step 7) Enter your latest PIN code.

When I enter my new PIN code, it says the PIN is not registered. What can I do?

You need to re-try, because this message only appears when you enter something incorrectly, e.g. when you miss a digit or the dash symbol, or write O (oh) instead of 0 (zero).
