I am having no issues with my CSI, NCIS keyword, nor my NBC AANY words. But my PBS autorecord is not working at all. I thought that maybe it was due to the fact, for some reason, that it was PBS. The keyword search was mightly confused by the fact that I had both the antenna and D* locals defined. So I turned off the antenna channels. Could the issue be related to mirrored HD and SD channels? Maybe it has something to do with the search limits on the number of returns on a keyword. My successful multis are rather unique words. My failures are on "House" and "Yankee" on PBS. Could the returns on searches be weighted to return network shows first? I think this might be the most likely scenario. I can't think of any way to test the hypothesis.
I think it's the recently imposed (last couple of months) 500 search match limit.
Let's say you set up a KEYWORD search for house TTITLE CCHAN 13
(my PBS affiliate). The HR2x first goes through all the GUIDE data and finds any shows with "house" in the title. I just tried it, and it finds 500 shows by 12/6 (5 days) and then stops searching. And none of the matches between now and 12/6 include a show on channel 13 in my area, so the search results in "0" matches.
I don't know how often the search is re-run, but let's say it's every "n" hours. If "house" on "channel 13" isn't found within 500 matches within whatever the minimum "lead time" the HR2x needs to put something on the TO DO LIST, it never gets scheduled. And I think any other
keywords that are part of that same search suffer the same fate, because the # of matches for house TTITLE
use up all
the available matches for all
the requested keywords.
Make any sense? Just my .02. /steve
