Once again I have a half remembered show that is bugging me.

The show was a mystery of the week kind of show sort of like X-files but with a more comedic tone.
The show also featured a computer that was powered by the Rosetta stone, and a comic relief character who happened to be a pig human hybrid.

I watched it sometime between 2000 and 2005 in South Africa, but the show was clearly American.

    powered by the actual Rosetta stone or a similar language translation ancient tablet? I ask because...searching for "Rosetta stone" and "computer" leads to lots of "Learn Spanish now!" results....may need more to go on. scifi.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/9335/…

    That was the problem I had when I was looking for this show. I think the actual Rosetta stone was being used as a sort of Magical CPU (don't quote me on that, I am paraphrasing what I remember). Commented Jun 16, 2017 at 14:08
  • For future reference, it may be useful to include details like whether it was live-action or animated, and whether the episodes were aired in half-hour or full-hour blocks. Commented Jun 16, 2017 at 22:54

Could be The Chronicle which aired in the US 2001-2. It has a character named Sal the Pig-Boy. You can see him & the rest of the cast in the pictures.

    I like when @FuzzyBoots shows his research path, so here it is. I saw that you were having trouble tracing the Rosetta stone angle, so I focused on the pig man. After a couple of general pig man searches, I figured there may be a TV tropes & saw The Chronicle in the list. Looked into it and got pictures, etc.
