Online Xfinity Search Is Useless.

Online Xfinity Search Is Useless.

Xfinity needs to upgrade their search engine. In the past week I've searched for 2 programs online so far. Both have produced no online results. Where's the convenience when I'm online and I come across a movie or show I want to see,to find out if it's available or not?  Trek Nation which I found today on my dvr box search and not here. And a movie called The Devil's Double. Which was just released today Nov.18,Video On Demand. You think that would show up in a search? I'm near Philadelphia here,so it isn't like I'm not in a major market area. I like the convenience when online to set up a program to record or the availability of it. What other options do we have to do both,other then here when you can find it?

That's really weird Rog. Although I found it through my dvr box search. This is what I get from the link you provided. We're sorry - this program currently has no listings in your area. I have the Science channel here,it came up on my dvr box search,but yet not here online? I'm online a lot doing ahem work,and as I said I like the convenience of looking up programs here. Something is broken on their search?

Oh well guess I'll just have to remember the titles or write them down,if they don't come up in a search online here?  Now If I could just remember where I put my pens and paper? Oh yes they're up in the attic in a dusty old box.
