    Hi Ed et al:

    Lingering bug from MCE v1 that I've found. When the region setting is
    "Canada", the day of the week is not displayed in the guide. I only get
    month and day in the top-left corner.

    Let me know if you need screenshots, but it's the same one I reported for
    v1.

    Actually, it's not a bug in MCE

    MCE will display whatever your Long Date setting in the Regional and
    Language Settings (minus the year).
    You'll find that by default, the Long Date setting in the Regional and
    Language Settings does not show the day of the week.

    That's why the day of the week is not displayed.

    Change your Long Date display to "dddd, MMMM d, yyyy" and you'll be set
    (regardless of version of MCE)

    Sweet, thanks Jason!

    It really was verified and logged as a bug about 11 months ago, I swear to
    it! ;-)

    I was unaware of the workaround, I'll get right on that.

    It's only displaying what it is being told to display.

  6. The to Jason and Pete. Yeah I remember this bug. I'll take a look next week
    and see what's the status of the bug. Likely we will create a KB article to
    address it.
