search for programs

There are some things better about X1 but the search feature is more difficult for me.  I want to search for a word that is in the episode description, not just in the title.  For example maybe a travel show or cooking show that one episode is in Philadelphia.  I used to be able to search the word Philadelphia and would get not only the name of a show but also where the description stated that it was in Philadelphia.  Now I only get shows with that word in the title.  Am I doing something wrong?

Re: search for programs

No, you're doing everything right. The search feature doesn't include what you're trying to do.

Re: search for programs

Thank you for the quick response.  It's very unfortunate that Comcast took away that great feature.  Is there a way to get this on a "wish list" for future upgrades?

tvguide app and site both offer search (be sure to change default from channel to program).
