"SEARCH" option a joke

Message 1 of 6
(6,183 Views)

Today - I used the search feature to find the movie "The Day The Earth Stood Still" and did not get one result.

I then searched for Keanu Reeves and got the HBO results for this movie.

Why didn't the movie show up when I searched by the title of it?

I don't know the answer to your question, but I just did a search for it, got as far as "the da" and The Day the Earth Stood Still came up as the 5th entry on the list. Shows 1 entry for FMC and 4 HBO showings.

 

How many times did you try? Maybe you just made a simple mistake and didn't realize it, or maybe the Guide data is wrong in your area (I have no idea where "camillus" is, or if it is even real), there has certainly been lots of problems with the Guide data.

 

Anyway, it worked for me, FWIW.

Glad you live in a real place Smiley Happy

 

All I can say is that the search does in fact work here, and found what you were looking for. And I would guess not just for me, maybe some others will chime in with yes or no for them.

i find stuff everytime.  I'm going to make the suggestion, that you spell the things your looking for correctly, and ALSO, start off with the first of the title.  Don't just do a search for "earth stood" or something.  Its not google, its a built in search on a set top box.

I put it in EXACTLY as the Title says "The Day The Earth Stood Still"  and I got NOTHING.

Maybe since Fios is new in our area they do not have the kinks worked out yet!
