Need software to record from ota tv card

I have a tv card in my Windows 10 computer and want an app with ability to download local, over the air, program guide and record tv shows. I did it for years with Media Center on Windows 7 and really miss it. I've looked at Kodi, but it seems to be geared to internet tv, not ota from an antenna (unless I'm missing something). would really appreciate some direction as to what people are using to record local tv shows.

I gave this a day to stew.

Such recording software is almost always from the card maker. How to set the channel is proprietary so we are asking the TV card maker for the new apps.

Another reason I let it stew was in case you realized that you left out details about the card full model number and make. Even better if you supply a link to the maker's support page on that card.

http://www.hauppauge.com/site/products/data_wintv8.html for example is for compatible Hauppauge products and lists Windows 10.

Thanks for the help.

Card is a Happauge WinTV-HVR-1600. My post was a little misleading. Machine is still Windows 7, but I want to take advantage of the free upgrade to 10 and wanted to be sure I could get by without Media Center. I think I can handle it from here. Card is a little old, and I probably won't be able to find the original installation disk, but even if I have to buy a new tuner card, it's good to know I can do without Media Center. Thanks again.
