    I was told this was fixed but not for me.

    I have an HR44/500 running 0xd8f from 1/16/18. I reboot it every two weeks to remind it to do the searches. However, I was away for three weeks and when I checked I discovered five programs that should have been scheduled to record weren't.

    If you have the same setup and searches are working for you, what are you doing?

    Do a reboot, then when you get back to live tv, do another... then do another when that gets back to live tv. Then don’t do anymore reboots at all and see if that fixes it. Note it will have to rebuild all guide data and such, so it’ll be sluggish and may not even show your recordings when it first gets back to love tv...

    OK. I was away for three months. All my regularly scheduled shows recorded. None of my keyword searchers worked. I'm sure they worked initially, but those were aged out and deleted to free up space along with older regularly scheduled shows. Although I knew a number of recent shows, such as the F1 race at COTA last week, should have recorded, they didn't. Therefore, unless somebody has a solution, I will continue to reboot my system every couple of weeks.

    Have you tried clearmybox. not sure it will help, but it really speeds my ancient HR20 up when it gets sluggish.
