I've just bought Windows 7 so I can get FreeviewHD through Media Center.

All is going well, except I have the audio delay issue with TV3.  Previously under PowerCinema I could tell it to use the alternative sound feed for TV3 which is in sync, however under W7MC I don't know how to do this...

Does anyone know?

Also, I seem to recall a posting on here a while ago showing step-by-step instructions on how to setup the EPG on W7MC, but I can't find it now - can someone please point me to it.  Thanks!

I have happily been using BigScreenEPG for a while now with W7MC. This program is a free alpha release but seems stable. Only thing not to do from within it is a mediacenter reset as there is a bug in the Win7 64bit version of this function.

You need an online source of EPG such as Haventech or geek. Once you get the EPG into BSE then from within BSE you export it to the W7MC database (from within BSE) then you need to disable the inband EPG that comes over the air and replace it with the imported data from BSE from within W7MC you do this by editing the individual channels and editing the listings within them.

Can't help with the audio sorry, but how are you getting your audio? SPIDF, HDMI, Analog?
