    I can not get my keyword searches working.
    I do a keyword search on for example “Tin Man”.
    It finds three episodes.
    I set up a autorecord: Both First runs and repeats.
    It does not record any of the three episode it has found.
    Is it me or a bug???
    Thanks

    Can someone else do a keyword search for "Tin Man" and see if it records?
    Thanks

    I did a keyword search on "tin man" and it found three espisodes on 12/24 on SciFi. I didn't try to autorecord since it is more than a week away, and conflicts with other recordings I have set up.

    Check history, see if there are any clues there.

    I too have trouble with keyword autorecords. Searches are one of the weakest features of the HR20. Combine a DVR that sometimes has trouble recording things with a DVR that has poor searches and you get a DVR not so good at autorecording searches.

    How much time did you give it? The autorecord takes time to populate into the todo list. Several hours, usually overnight.

    The best method when setting up a new autorecord is to pick the showings from the search list you want to record and set them to record using the record button for the first 24 hours. Otherwise, it may take long enough that it won't get the shows in the very near future.

    I have noticed that sometimes keyword search autorecord items don't show up on the todo list until several hours before the program is aired.

    Do you mean it did not actually record any of them, or that you could not find them in the "to do" list?
