That is exactly correct. That also happened in November, when we searched for and never found the Thanksgiving Charlie Brown, which we then missed. Also has occurred with holiday movies--just searched for the holiday movie, Christmas in Connecticut. I know that it's airing this weekend on both TMC and AMC. But a search shows the next time it's on Xfinity is on 12/17 on Sundance. So it doesn't even show that it's on this weekend on 2 other channels. And for some reason, the Charlie Brown shows are never showing up as airing at all--even though they are, since one just aired tonight.

We used to be able to search for any shows for upcoming times to record. Now the search often doesn't pick up shows that are even scheduled for the evening. Case in point, the Charlie Brown specials, that I used to search ahead of time to record for my kids. Just happened to see in the newspaper today it's on tonight but when I search using the XR11 voice activiated remote, only the "buy/rent" options come up. I can see it on the channel guide and I am going to record it. But unless I google it ahead of time, these shows never show up on a search and we miss them (and they are not on demand after). Ditto other holiday movies on AMC and movies on the Indie channel. Have talked to tech at Comcast, advanced tech, etc., have run all kinds of diagnostics and no one knows what's going on. I think it's being blacked out as a search item and don't understand why, other than to force people into paying for a program that's free on a nationally broadcasted channel (ABC). Weirdly, the shows before and after show up on a search.
