Has anyone got the Tinytwin and Scheduler Pro working with Windows 10 x64?
If so, how?

I can setup Scheduler Pro to see the devices, select channels, etc, but it fails to start recording (nearly always), and if it does record, it doesn't end at the scheduled time.

Any suggestions?

Make sure the tuner is connected to a USB2 controller rather than a USB3 one. This doesn't mean a USB2 port off a USB3 controller either, it must be an actual USB2 controller. Many of the drivers for USB tuners have problems with the new USB3 driver stack that is in Windows 10 causing problems like you are experiencing and even causing Windows to BSOD. If you have no choice but to use a USB3 controller, and you have an Intel USB3 controller, it is possible to hack Intel's Windows 7 driver installation files to allow them to be installed on Windows 10, but IMO this is a poor choice and also require Windows 10's driver updates to be turned off.

It may also be that Windows 10 has done its thing and installed an incorrect driver for the tuner behind your back. Turn Windows 10's driver updates off (see here) then re-install the Tinytwin's drivers and verify that the correct version is shown in the tuner's properties via device manager.

Thanks for that advice. Fortunately I have one USB 2 port, but I am not sure whether or not it is hanging off a USB 3 controller. Is there a way of finding out?
I've attached a screen image of the Device Manager, but I'm not sure what this is showing.

If you look at the menu bar in device manager, click View, then Devices by Connection and that will reorder the tree so you can see the way devices are related.

Thanks, yes I believe I now have my TinyTwin connected to USB2. (or at least a "legacy USB controller").
I'll do some test recording over the next week to see if I now have confidence in the system. I am also considering bringing an older machine into service as a replacement for the laptop.
I started with this new laptop so that I had a measure of security from mains power outages, but ran in to these more pressing problems!
