    I have a search auto-record that had worked for many months but stopped working, not sure when, because the new baseball season just started.

    I have a HR21-100, the search stopped working for AALL CARDINALS CCHAN671 NNOT POSTGAME PREGAME KIDS & SPORTS & BASEBALL. I tried doing a search of ALL CARDINALS CCHAN671 & SPORTS & BASEBALL and that does not return any results either. I have tried several other similar searches with no results.

    There was an update ox66d received yesterday at 3:08 am but I am pretty sure the search stopped working before that.

    I have a HR20-700 in the bedroom and the same search/autorecord still works.

    I tried searching this forum but did not see anything newer than 2008.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Try changing CCHAN671 to CCHANS 671. They added an 'S' to 'CCHAN' a few releases ago. I think either worked for a while, but apparently only CCHANS works now.

    That worked. Thank you very much. I wonder why the HR20-700 still works with cchan671?

    Looks like the character limit is shorter it stopped letting me enter after ALL CHARDINALS CCHANS 671 LIVE NNOT POSTGAME PREGA & SPORTS & BASEBALL. but this works good enough. It did pickup a show called Cardinals Live but I guess if I want to limit the results to live games and not replays I have to live with that.

    Thanks again.

    You don't need the AALL in that search, so that should free up a few characters for you.

    Perfect!

    I tried "cardinals cchan 671 nnot postgame pregame kids & baseball & sports"
    and that worked just as I needed it to, it captured all the games and not the "Live Cardinals" which had pregame in the comments.

    Then I noticed I forgot the s on cchan so I tied "cardinals cchans 671 nnot postgame pregame kids & baseball & sports" and that worked too.

    So now I have 2 options in case one stops working again.

    This is my #1 thing to auto-record, so thank you very much Steve.
