So, I think I've gotten used to the limitations in recording sporting events with the Hopper. Without any filters, I basically just have to accept that I'm going to get the random show NOT at all related to what I'm wanting. What I'm running into, however, is a completely different issue.
To record Pacers basketball games, I use the following two auto-records: "AT PACERS" and "PACERS AT". This works pretty well to get most games. HOWEVER - what I'm now starting to also get, is the all day "show" of "Coming Soon: Magic at Pacers". Every time they have a game, I'm recording a 7 hour musical interlude. Any thoughts on how to NOT record this? On DirecTV, with Boolean, I'd just throw in a "NNOT Coming", and that would take care of it. I can't think of anything on Dish.
Also - do the providers realize that whichever one of them creates a sports menu first, one that allows you to just tick checkboxes next to the team that you want recorded, will win the sports TV war? Why are we still having to go through these archaic keyword recordings?!
