    Am I the only one still having issues with Sports Search on my HR34? Sprint Cup does not populate any races for months now, Nationwide is still listed as an option and not Xfinity, but Nascar Truck races populate just fine. That's the only Nascar race search that works.

    My Brewers Sport Search populates games, including duplicates on local Spanish OTA channels and Fox Deportes channel 425. I have the local OTA's unchecked in my edited off-air channels, and those channels along with 425 are unchecked in my Custom1 channel list I created. Yet, they are still populating for recording. I am guessing that feature is not working correctly either.

    I assume I should resort to a Boolean smart search unless I am doing something wrong. Anyone else with the same problems? Thanks.

    What a cluster. I'm glad the big four pro sports seem to work fine. But racing seems to be in the bottom of the river. :(

    I really feel like they don't want to correct Nationwide to be Xfinity because Xfinity is their competition....

    Good point....never thought of it that way. They at least need to fix Sprint Cup.

    If that's the reason then whoever made that call should be fired along with the guy above him for allowing that guy to think like that in the first place. I have no compassion for idiots doing things like that on purpose.

    However I doubt that's why the issue is there myself. I think it's more the do one thing then move onto another and don't worry about keeping it up to date constantly mentality of the bean counters who control what's worked on and when.

    If they can't keep a feature up to date they shouldn't have put out the feature.

    I went back to a Boolean search to get Sprint Cup races to record.
