    Not sure if this is a MP thing or a skin thing (PureVision), but has been an issue since I started using MP (1.12, currently 1.22 Pre). As you can see at the top of the screen, I have formatted the time according to my region (United States), but in all sections of the TV Guide (including Recorded, Search, Scheduler...) the date in the list displays in the European format. 9-4 makes me think "September 4" instead of April 9. Wouldn't it be easier to just have MP automatically follow the OS settings?

    It´s MP related - NOT a skin issue ;)
    Value is hardcoded and can´t be changed by skinner ;)

    Ah, just remembered: Go to MP Config -> Plugins -> Home and configure your date display according to your needs ;)
    AFAIK this is the value shown in different areas ;)

    Thanks Owlsroost and catavolt for your replies! As you can see in the attached screenshots, my Windows as well as my MP settings are in the U.S. format, but MP still displays in the European format in the TV Guide area.

    Hi
    That is because those settings are not used in the TV Guide area. The DD-MM format is hard coded here:
    MediaPortal/MediaPortal-1
    Edit:whistle:
    also here
    MediaPortal/MediaPortal-1

    Many thanks @Owlsroost for the build. I have tested your build with regions US, UK, DE and FR both for TV and radio. All pass the test.
    The fix uses the format for month/day in Windows, so germans get their . between month and day.
