Is there a plan to add a search box when looking for a specific show? When I type in a show like lost it would be nice to do a search and if the show was not found then it would add it to my list to record if the show was ever playing.

Since you're posting in the HD DVR forum, you should have a feature that would accomplish your wish ...

Go to MENU > Search, choose Keyword Search.
Enter the following as the search term:

LOST TTITLE CCHANEL NNN

Replace NNN with your ABC Affiliate channel number, and note that there are two leading T's on TTITLE and two leading C's on CCHANEL. Using this, the DVR will restrict its searches to that channel only, and LOST must be in the title.

Click continue and select a category if you desire. Then press SELECT to run the search.

Then choose AUTORECORD and specify FIRST RUN or REPEAT. Save the settings and you will have a new Series Link for LOST on your ABC affiliate. Even if there are no matches in the guide right now, keep watching your TO DO LIST and soon you'll see programs and can change from a ARSL (Auto Record Series Link) to a regular Series Link on the channel.

Good luck!

By the way, I think LOST isn't on until January 20009, so that will be a longer wait!

Oops! :lol: Indeed, that will be a LONG wait... I wonder if they'll be off the island by then! :p

I'm not even going to fix it ... it's a nice conversation starter. Hey, did you hear Lost isn't returning until twenty-oh-oh-nine? :D

Or would that be twenty-uh-oh-nine?

BTW, we know they're off the island. The question is if they are back on the island...

As to whether they're off the island ...

Not all of them are off ... Only the Oceanic 6 got off, while quite a few got left behind!
