    I would like to change the input language shortcut from cmd-space to a more dual boot friendly alt-shift (or even cmd-shift). I can't seem to be able to change it from system preferences-->keyboard-->keyboard shortcuts. Am I missing something?

    I am running 10.6.8 . I have this dialog option but could not change it. Just now it came to me to actually click on the shortcut and not on it's description and I get the option to change it. Won't accept alt-shift or cmd-shift though as they are both modifier keys and are not sellectable together...

    The option might not available because it is already used in another shortcut. Check the ! sign to see which shortcut it is (mine was for spotlight), and if you don't need it, just untick it and tick the input source one again.
