Hi,

I've read that if you install Windows 7 with US selected as the location you get the Internet TV option in Media Center, but then when setting up tuners if you select NZ it disappears. Does anyone know if you can tune either terrestrial or sat channels in NZ with the US location selected?

(Want to know before I attempt playing with my setup :)

It doesn't matter - when you actually try to select any of the "Internet TV" channels it just says "not available in your country" regardless of your Locale - it relies on your IP address for that.

Don't bother with that, just set your TV tuners as you would.
