    Hi, I'm just not good with this Boolean stuff I guess, I have looked at the pages and am still stumped. I'm trying to record two things (separately).

    the first: Episodes of Jeopardy with Alex Trebek as host.

    the second: Anything (tv show or movie) with Hilary Duff EXCEPT the show "Younger"

    I've tried lots of things, but I can't seem to get it right. For example, I've tried "AALL JEOPARDY TTITLE ALEX TREBEK NNAME" and "AALL HILARY DUFF NNAME NNOT YOUNGER TTITLE". The Hilary Duff one looks like it'll work but I just want to verify it's correct. The Jeopardy I think isn't working because it's listed as "Jeopardy!" in the guide data and I can't figure out how to get an exclamation point in the search box. Can someone help me with this?

    thanks in advance

    Well, I guess I figured out a workaround, I just did a keyword search for "Alex Trebek" and scrolled down to "Show Types" and pressed "Game Show." That seems to have been easier than the boolean.
