    Thanks, I was just reading your autorecord thread and they do seem likely to be the same root cause. I haven't done the beta software thing in a few years, I think I need to go check out the latest threads and see if anyone is talking about this... I hope it actually is a known issue as the poster in your thread indicated, the fact it's affecting more than just the team season recordings gives me encouragement that they'll be aware of the problem and working on a fix.

    Hi Jim,
    I am also fighting with the same problem on my HR-34. All my Bolean searches for Formula 1 and San Jose Sharks are not working. My Teams is also not recording. I have done the clearmybox and i am waiting to see what happens. Unfortunately, I have manually requested the Brazilian Race and the next 4/5 Sharks games. I will wait and see what happens. Very upsetting as the Bolean Searches have worked like a charm for me for years...

    UPDATE: 11/14/2015....Today I am trying something to see if it can correct the recording issue....I have done the following: Removed all teams from Sports search, deleted all ToDo list recordings of any teams/sports that were in Sports search, deleted all Series/Season links related to any Sports/Teams from the Manage Recordings menu. After all of those deletions I then did a new "clearmybox" search. The Guide data is currently rebuilding. After it loads completely I will re-do the "Team Search" and see if anything changes. I'll report my findings, which will probably take a few days.....

    I will report that after I ran the 'clearmybox' and the index was rebuilt this feature has been working perfectly ever since.

    this happens to me too, but then it doesn't update further from there. so it's fine for as far as that initial population went, but won't update (at least for me after the clearmybox).

    You might be screwed for a couple weeks and have to manually add the recordings because you canceled any it had already seen as being set. Again maybe. Just watch it carefully for the next two weeks. If you can wait to see what it actually does when a game is supposed to start.

    UPDATE 2: 11/15/15....After allowing time to propagate the Guide data as outlined in post #23......Checking this AM, it now appears that those procedures have had a positive effect. All my "Teams" are set to Record for the next 2 weeks!! It even picked up the F1 event on the 27th. The only issue is that the recorded channel is not always my "local" RSN, however that has always been the case for me. Surprisingly though it did set to record the Avs on their "sister" channel 681-1 on Tuesday.

    Sidenote....The Avs and Nuggets games are broadcast on Altitude and often they play on the same night, so one of them gets bumped to Altitude2(681-1), but the Guide data is always late arriving for that channel and so the search defaults to another RSN often.

    Anyway...Glad this has been sorted out, hopefully for the duration. Hope this post can help others...

    If I correctly understand what I've read on this issue ...

    With a reboot, it seems to find and schedule correctly for the initial two-week guide reload. The problem crops up for showings beyond this first two-week window. So keep a careful eye for what it does on days 15+.

    But I've also read indications that the problem may only be a cosmetic one in that things may not show correctly in the ToDo list, but end up recording okay anyhow.

    I've only had my Genie for about two weeks now, so I'm just getting into that beyond-two-weeks time period, and I haven't tried the "record my teams" feature yet - have just scheduled individual games. I've just loaded an NFL team I don't follow at all into the system to see how it is handled -- meanwhile I'm making sure the games I DO care about are listed in the ToDo list.

    It sounds like it was a software bug that stopped them from working. Adjusting the to do list breaks things more often than not and except for when there is an actual bug messing with the to do list causes things to not work as they are programmed to because you override and tell it to not do what it normally would do if you mess with the to do list.

    For me:

    - your first point is absolutely what happens. On a reboot, it will populate correctly for the initial approx. 2 week guide data. Beyond this window, autorecord keyword searches do not set to record anymore. It is still not fixed for me

    - it is NOT a cosmetic problem. the recordings don't happen.

    For me keyword searches for sports still work but my teams fails to record even though it lists the games when you look at upcoming in series manager. It just won't record them as everyone else has said.

    I've kept my pro team keyword searches since moving to genie but I was excited to add UVA basketball and football with my teams. There's no practical Boolean keyword search to eliminate all other colleges with Virginia in the name. If you eliminate them with NNOT you won't record when they play each other. I thought genie was the answer but I just got it and it worked for two weeks and then stopped.

    try a clearmybox. i'm not 100% certain yet, but it seems to be recording everything for the moment after doing that. to do this, do a keyword search for "clearmybox" do it when you don't need the dvr for a few minutes (and it will clear all guide data so takes awhile to repopulate)

    UPDATE 3: Well....its not sorted out....As someone else reported, after the initial Guide info (after a "clearmybox" reboot) was over(about 12 days worth), the HR44 went back to the same problem, games were in the Sports Search, but were not listed to record, nor did they record. So.....I did another "clearmybox"..
    Now the games for the next 10-12 days show in the ToDo list, and in fact the "Season Record" entries are in the Series Manager, however Sports Search,Pandora, and MyDirectv have not returned to the Menu. I waited 2 days and tried a normal reboot....it did nothing to restore those items, but it appeared to flush the Guide data again. In the past a simple reboot would not flush the Guide....
    Its been 3 days now since the "clearmybox" reboot, but I still don't have those items back in the Menu....Games are recording and are set to record for the next 10 days, but then........?

    this is not fixed for me either. doing a clearmybox will make it work for a couple of weeks, but as soon as it gets outside the initial guide data population, it stops recording keyword searches. :(

    I have to admit I'm completely confused why you all are having issues since I'm not and neither are several others I know.

    Are you all connected to the Internet?

    there are millions of units out there. it is not surprising in the least that a bug is only being seen in a subset of them. nearly all software bugs show up this way . yes, connected to internet

    Unless you are doing some Video On Demand Try disconnecting from the Internet for a and see what happens. I might have a theory. But the only way is to unplug and see what happens.

    It could be that your local server has issues with its guide data and is causing the issues. I haven't seen that yet with arsls of this nature, but its not out of the realm., We have only seen it mess with how many things search finds int he past, but since this is searched based, one must wonder...
