I have the following keyword search item entered into my HR21-100/ver 0x255 prioritizer more than 2 weeks ago:
AALL NOTRE DAME LIVE EVENTS with the category SPORTS & Football.
Today this finds 5 items (correctly): among them, Notre Dame @ North Carolina.
The search is set to autorecord with the following options:
Episode Type: Both
Keep at Most : 5 Programs
Keep Until: Disk is Full
Problem: None of the shows are selected to be recorded.
The Search has no problems in finding the correct games. The problem is that it will not record them, even though AUTORECORD was activated .
In Prioritizer the Notre Dame item says Nothing Selected, yet when you select that Item it shows 5 items that could have been, and should have been recorded.
There are no other programs in the to-do list during the game time frame. There is no indication in the to-do list of anything regarding this game. Nothing exists in the history file either.
It appears that autorecord is not selecting something to be recorded.
Same happens for a similar ILLINOIS and WISCONSIN setup. Lots of items in the list, but nothing highlighted to record.
What am I doing wrong?
Not sure you're doing anything wrong. I tried your search AALL notre dame live events
and found only one match, a Woman's Soccer game on 10/19. (I purposely left off Sports, Football
to get more results.) I selected AUTORECORD, but it did not immediately populate the TODO list, which is normal bad behavior by the HR2x that we've been complaining about for ages. That said, I have no doubt that as the week goes on, that showing will make it into the TODO list prior to 10/19.
Then I tried a more streamlined version of your search: notre dame & Show Type, Events
. "notre dame" when not prefaced by AANY or AALL will only match shows containing the literal phrase "notre dame", and not a show that may contain the words in a different order. I could have also used "events" as a keyword, and since "notre" is such a rare word, AALL notre events
works just as well in this case
Either of those two searches produces the same 6 results. 2 games today... Women's College Volleyball at noon on 614. Notre Dame @ North Carolina at 11:30PM on 640. Neither was immediately flagged to RECORD. Next Sunday's Women College Soccer game was, in this case! Go figure. Three subsequent showings of Women's Soccer were unchecked, probably because they are repeat episodes.
In my case, none of these will record, because I don't subscribe to 613, 614 or 640. Another one of our long-standing complaints. We'd like to only see channels we receive show up in SEARCH results.
So in summary. Don't make your searches too specific, and be patient with the TODO list until DirecTV addresses another one of our Wish List items... the ability to force an immediate update to the TODO list so it populates with all matching shows in the GUIDE data.
