Here is where you will find some new ideas for the search feature

>jump to listing by day/time capability just like you can that of the Dishplayer (it looks like a calendar and you select the day on the calendar)
 
>in history  make it to where you can clear just one or more word(s) instead of all of them (just as you would select and deselect favorite channels in the favorite list)
 
>should be a confirmation prompt before erasing the entire Search History list
 
>increase the speed of the search
 
>record a show automatically each time that show is found using the search feature (it would record the show based on when it is actually on instead of programming the unit to record just at a certain time)
 
>do not limit the amount of characters you can type in
 
> SEARCH feature - to search for programs by title, artist, keywords, etc with the remote control 

>If one searches for a certain channel show just what is airing on that channel each day of the week for that timeslot just as the dishplayer does 

> Save searches 

> Filter searches (manually each time or for now on) 

> After search is complete select which shows to record from that screen 

> Search for any info listed on Guide, listed as new, or on the show info screen 

> Search multiple items at once

> Allow the search to be stopped midstream with the results already found
 
> Edit words in history
 
> Limit searches to sub channels only
 
> The search result window only gives you the channel number. ((501 gives you channel number plus description of channel on result window))
 
> open the guide and highlight a show that is on at 10pm on HBO and hit search and have it search for other occurences of that show
 
> Search only in current guide (AllSub, Favorites, All Channels)

> search by theme

> Make arrow keys functional on virtual keyboard (for insert and edit)
