    OK, I just checked the onlight spotlight in media center and have access to all this US content such as XM Radio and MTV Overdrive, anyone else has access to this?...MTV Overdrive is pretty tight...so is XM Radio loads of choice in Music...

    you should be able to access the us stuff if you change your regional settings in control panel

    have you perhaps had a fiddle there lately?

    if not, it must be a foobar with online spotlight

    Nope my settigns are set to the UK, but the content is great, there is a channel called "Akimbo" and they have loads of videos from the BBC and around the world...wow the content takes so long to buffer, I canot even access anything from MTV Overdrive, so I went over to the MTV Site and tried the stadnalone version of it and it says it's only available to those in the US, oh well, I'm going ot find a working Proxy, the US get everything don't they...
