Your new Genie probably hasn't received the latest firmware update, give it some time and the icon will appear.

It may be the software version on your "new" Genie doesn't have Sports Search, or that it hasn't yet downloaded. It's different from the "you might like" kind of thing; you don't have to teach anything to the former, except you may want to designate your teams.

Thanks Scott and Laxguy!  So I guess that means it's just a matter of time before my genie downloads the new firmware.  Would occasionally rebooting it mean I might get the update sooner or would that not have any effect?

It won't make a difference at all.

Or you can do all your sport searches on the Genie once it gets updated and record them, then watch them on 24 via WH.

That's actually a good idea. Just like the H2x can't browse the VOD channels on 1000+, even if they see a networked DVR on the coax it could harness the power to. It's like the H2x series has peaked long ago, now the HR2x has peaked, and the genie is the new king.

This looks like a great feature for Sports fans.

I still rely on manual searches for my local teams schedule, because when I set a season series record on a team, it tries to record on some of the sport package channels ie league pass, but for the most part it's scheduled on local channels or cable channels.

Doesn't matter if it records the remap of the sports channel on a league pass channel number though. You'll still get the game. And you'll get your home team channel as well unless you have league pass and dual feeds are available then it's a toss up. But you'd still get the game.

It will come back. If it doesn't after a day then try a reset.

Can't say I'm impressed with sports search. Manchester United is one of my teams, says no upcoming events. Doing my own search I found 3 upcoming games (Jan 1, 4, 7)? What gives?? Seems like the old search with just a cooler looking menu screen...

Well set it to record all their games via the team record option and see if it does. Odd though.

Man U shows up in a list under "Englsih Premier League Soccer" for Wednesday's game.

Surprisingly, a few NCAA Bowl games aren't showing up in Sports Search.  Neither the Orange Bowl (Ohio State vs Clemson on Friday night) nor the BCS Championship game (Florida State vs Auburn, next Monday night) show up when I select NCAA FB.  I had to find the games in the program guide in order to set recordings for them.

Now that I have a Genie, I really like this. However, I am not a big fan of tile screens. They don't show a lot of detail on a single screen and they cut off the real information (like the full team names) in this implementation. It is a bigger issue with the new searches for On Demand and the like, but it would be very nice if there was a "list" option as well as the tile option.

Yep, blame it on the feature..... lol


Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.
