    I've tried dropping this on the Swedish Microsoft support, but they haven't
    gotten back to me - which is not really the best of ways to treat customers.

    So, I'm hoping someone here might help :)

    What we want to do is run a US (English) Vista Home Premium in MCE mode and
    be able to watch the swedish EPG list. Is this possible? I know there has
    been problems with the MCE 2005 where the English one (the only one that came
    out at first) couldn't handel it. Since then I don't know if it is a rumour
    or a fact.

    Second, is there a possibility to run dual tuning cards like Hauppauge
    Win-TV Nova 500?

    Regards and many thanks.

  2. Hi,

    I don't know about the EPG using a US version of Vista - when setting up
    Media Centre in Vista it does give the option of setting up region specific
    stuff, but not sure if the EPG is covered.

    As to the Nova 500 twin tuner - I use one, and have had no problems with it.
    Vista recognises it and sets it up fine.

    I haven't tried changing it but assuming that it's the same as MCE 2005 then it's the Location
    setting in Regional Settings that determines which EPG is offered.
