Do Keyword Searches on the HR21 Work?

544 Views 8 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  donley
Someone straighten me out. I keep trying to do a "track field" keyword search to find the track and field coverage for the olympics. It finds like 20 instances of programs but never adds anything to the to do list. It is starting to seriously annoy me. My old standard def directivo is doing EXACTLY what I expect while this crazy thing drives me crazy. I have powered the unit off more than once since this problem started. Any suggestions?

Are you selecting autorecord or are you selecting each show individually and hitting record once.

edit: I just did the same thing, and hit record once on one of the first instances (XXIX Summer Olympics on 8/15 at 9am), and it's in my todo list now.
I am trying to do autorecord. First runs only

The problem might be that you're selecting first runs only. I doubt if each showing of the Olympics will be classified as first run in the guide data.
I just changed it to BOTH. So far nothing in the to do list. I will check again in the morning. I guess the fundamental problem is, I am used to the directivo, it worked for years like a champ and I trust it. This thing not so much.

The biggest problem with autorecords is that they don't populate the to do list in a timely fashion. They record, but they dont tell you they are going to like a regular SL does... at least not consistently. Its a wishlist item to get fixed.
Let me get this straight. What you are telling me is the odds are very high that eventually this stuff will get added to the to do list it is just hard to tell when that will happen?

You will see them in ToDo list 24-48 hr before they are recorded.
OK. I guess that is not totally unreasonable. However when you are trying to manage the recordings for something as big and complicated as all the olympic channels and times it is certainly far from ideal.
