Keyowrd Search X1 DVR

I just upgrade from Motorolla box to X1.  It doesn't seem to have the keyword search for finding shows to record. I used to be able to type Denmark or Alligator and get a list of shows with that in the description.  It was a very important feature to the DVR.  Am an missing something?  Is there a good work around for this?

Re: Keyowrd Search X1 DVR

As far as I know, you can still search for shows by inputting the name using the number keypad but it's intuitive. Meaning if you want to input the word alligator, you'd input 255442867. Only once for each letter and all combinations that fit those numbers will show. However, also as far as I know, it will only show you those shows whose title matches, not the description. 


If if you have X1 Voice, however, you can ask to be shown genre shows. E.g. Activate voice and say "show me cooking shows" and a list of all cooking shows will appear whether the word is in the title or not. Just say "cooking" and all shows and movies regarding cooking will appear.


It seems manual search is limited to titles only and voice is limited to titles and genres, with very limited description searches. I've yet to be able to search by description.

Thank you.  Used that search a bunch and sorry to see it gone.
