When you enter text by using the on-screen keyboard of an Xbox 360 console that you are using as a Media Center Extender, the text appears to be correct on the on-screen keyboard. However, the text does not appear to be correct in the Media Center user interface.


The behavior can occur if the language and region settings were changed on the Media Center computer after the Media Center Extender was added or if the language and regional settings were not set correctly when the Extender was added.


  • Reconfigure the language and region settings. To do this, follow these steps:
    • ==== On the Windows Vista-based Media Center computer ====
      1. Click the Start button [GRAPHIC: Start button], type intl.cpl in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
      2. Click the Administrative tab.
      3. Click Copy to reserved accounts.

        Note If the User Account Control window appears, click Continue.

      4. Select Default user account (new users), and then click OK.
      5. Start Windows Media Center.
      6. Click Tasks, and then click Settings.
      7. Click Extender, and then select the Xbox 360 console.
      8. Click Uninstall.
    • ==== On the Xbox 360 console ====
      1. In the System section of the Xbox Dashboard, select Computers.
      2. Select Windows Media Center, and then press the A button.
      3. Select Disconnect.
      4. Press the B button repeatedly until you return to the System section.
      5. In the Media section of the Xbox 360 dashboard, select Media Center.
      6. Advance through the on-screen instructions to obtain the eight-digit setup key.
      7. Note the setup key.
    • ==== On the Windows Vista-based Media Center computer ====
      1. Start Windows Media Center.
      2. Click Tasks, and then click Add Extender.
      3. When you are prompted, provide the eight-digit setup key that you obtained from the Media section of the Xbox 360 dashboard.
