    This is a summary of the keyword search power tricks from the programmers

    Simple Grammar

    [{AANY/AALL} <tokens>] [{NNOT} <tokens>] [TTITLE/NNAME] [{CCHAN} <number> [<number>]]

    Boolean Logic

    “AALL” => (this is the AND boolean operation) all the following words must be contained within the program (title, about, name, episode, category) in any order
    “AANY” => (this is the OR boolean operation) at least one of the following words must be contained within the program (title, about, name, episode, category)
    “NNOT” => (this is the NOT boolean operation) exclude any programs that contain any of the following words in that search string

    The AANY and AALL keywords should appear as the first word in the search string in order to set the search mode.
    The NNOT keyword may appear anywhere and all words following the NNOT keyword are considered words to exclude.

    Scope Filters

    TTITLE => Limits the search to only the Title field of the Programs
    NNAME => Limits the search to only the Name field (e.g. Actors, Director) of the Program
    CCHAN => Limits the search to only the specified channel range (example CCHAN 500 510, or CCHAN 500 for a single channel)

    Some sample queries

    AALL racing car NNOT nascar => finds all shows containing “car” and “racing” (any order/position), but excludes the show if “nascar” appears
    AALL hanks tom NNOT vinci => finds all tom hanks movies/shows but excludes the movie if the word “vinci” appears (e.g. da vinci code)
    AALL hanks tom NNAME => finds all tom hanks programs where he is an actor
    AALL hdtv football => finds all high definition football programs (note you can include category labels in the search and “HDTV” is same as “High-Def”)
    AANY usc ucla NNOT football => finds all usc and ucla events/shows, but excludes football events
    oakland raiders NNOT miami => finds exact match for “oakland raiders” but excludes show if “miami” appears (e.g. excludes games with Miami Dolphins)
    AANY lakers clippers CCHAN 700 730 => finds all games with the Lakers or Clippers on only channels 700 through 730
    AANY lakers clippers CCHAN 710 => finds all games with the Lakers or Clippers on only channel 710
