TV listing search no longer working correctly

Message 1 of 3

Has anyone else noticed that the TV listing search doesn't work correctly?  For example, if I'm looking for a football game with a team I want to watch (e.g. Penn State), no matches come up.  The only way to find the game is to look for "College Football" and then read the descriptions for each game.


Very annoying.  Anyone else have this issue?

I have found the exact issue you have stated regarding the Penn State games.  Try searching for Nittany for the search word instead of Penn State - this has worked for me.


I agree there are many weaknesses in the FiOS search algorithm including not listing the HD version during search Smiley Mad

I too have noticed the change. Just the other day I was searching for Michigan in the guide to find the time for Saturdays game but no luck. Then I noticed that most of the games still had no program description. I am assuming because the guide info company (that sucks horribly) doesnt know which games espn is picking up and which ones it is not.
