    So I have this keyword search:

    CYCLING NNOT TRIATHLON NNOT XTERRA

    It lists programs on channels that I don't even get. Really? It's not smart enough to know I don't even GET those channels?

    Also, the NNOT works for the Triathlon exclusion, but still shows "XTERRA USA CHAMPIONSHIP", which I don't want.

    Frustrating.

    Any tips ?

    It's a Boolean search. You must enter all the filtering.

    Yup, it's a Boolean Search so it's "wide open" and only pays attention to what you enter. You'll need to tell it which channels you want, since listing the ones you don't want will be too long.

    First off you entered to many nnot. All words after the first nnot will be excluded, get rid of the second nnot. That's why the second one was ignored.

    Then add a cchans modifier so you can narrow down to the correct channel or channel range you want it to pull from. Don't get me started on channels I get issues. But follow the link in the bottom of my signature to find all the info about booleans and how to use them.
