Has anyone had problems with Smart Search in the past week?

I've tried typing in names of shows I'm pretty sure are coming, and while they display the show, there is a message that there were no "matching" programs.

I then went on to DIRECTV.com and did a search and discovered yes, there were these shows coming the next day, so I used DVR Scheduler to put them into my To Do list, and they recorded.

These included Californication and the Bud Greenspan Olympic specials.

I honestly did not notice this issue when HDUI first launched, so am wondering if anyone knows if D* is aware of this and implementing a fix.

Thanks.

No, no problem here.

I just did a search for both Californication and Bud Greenspan and I am seeing episodes for both shows when I do a search (including the VOD episodes).

Interesting.

Do you have a broadband connection on your box? I haven't hooked that up yet. Could that be why I'm not getting the same results from my search?

Searches do not rely on a broadband connection, just on the guide data on the box. You may want to try flushing your guide data and having the box build a new set of data. You can do that by rebooting the unit twice within a 30 minute period.

The Guide Data takes up to 24 Hours to load almost two weeks of programs. You could get some strange results when it's in the process.

Resets could extend the time of this process. Or the data could have gotten corrupted on your receiver. This wll either clear in time or you could do a double-menu reset to flush the data and then wait another 24-hours to see if the problem cleared.

Yeah, broadband has nothing to do with the searches and you and I are both in the LA area. I'm on the west side, so if you are also in the same metro area, I'm guessing you would have gotten the HD UI a couple of weeks back.

When exactly did you receive the UI?
