Windows 7: Changing manually TV standard

Changing manually TV standard

Is there any way to change WMC 's TV standard without changing 'Selected Region'?

I come from Greece. Here, analog TV's standard format is PAL-B/G. Somehow, all TV PC programs define it as SECAM (France's standard). In older OS and TV programs I simply changed it to the correct one and I had perfect image (for analog TV).

When I set up WMC in 7-64bit and choose 'Greece' as region, I find all the channels but with fuzzy image (indicating false decoding for wrong TV standard). If I change region to known countries with PAL-B or PAL-G, I can't get all the channel + I have all the useless guide listings.

If I use the corresponding software with the TV tuner, I can get the satisfying result, but I like WMC better and I want to give it a chance.
