    When I go into Smart Search and try to use the suggested searches I can not get anything to come up. It says this should just take a minute, but I let it run and run, but no programs ever come up. If I'm typing in a name of a person or show the search function works fine. I don't understand why one works, but the other doesn't?

    Have you tried a reboot? If so and it still doesn't work you'll most likely need to flush your guide data. You can do that by rebooting twice within 30 minutes. Basically reboot and once you're back to live tv reboot again. You'll have the next few hours of guide data immediately but anything after that will take up to 48 hours to process.

    I just chose the Top TV picks or something like that and it took it about 7 seconds to put results on the screen.
