I am curious how folks are dealing with sports and the Genie. I am coming from a TiVo world that had Wishlists. One of mine was:

"Michigan State" +"Basketball" +"HD" -"women"

This would give me Michigan State Basketball in HD for only the men's games. This worked out great! (no offense to the ladies on the forum either)

I just don't see how to do the same thing with the Genie. So I'm really curious on how others deal with sports and more specifically, sporting events for a particular team. If I do a keyword for "Michigan State", I will certainly get all the games, but I will also get a bunch of other shows I really don't want (and the sheer number of non-sporting events on the B1G Network is fairly large).

If I try a keyword of "Michigan State Basketball" I don't get any recordings.

I'm really at a loss.

Thank you.

Totally understand what is being done there. However, it just doesn't seem to work. =( I started broadly with:

TTITLE MICHIGAN STATE

This does not return any results.

AALL MICHIGAN STATE

This also does not return any results. But if I just search for "MICHIGAN STATE" I can clearly see in the title "MICHIGAN STATE @ NEBRASKA".

Odd.

After playing with it, I'm curious if the Genie accepts these Boolean switches.

You're welcome.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.
