This is a summary of the keyword search power tricks from the programmers (for
reference):

Simple Grammar:
[{AANY/AALL} <tokens>] [{NNOT} <tokens>] [TTITLE/NNAME] [{CCHAN} <number> [<number>]]

BOOLEAN LOGIC:

“AALL” => (this is the AND boolean operation) all the following words must be contained within the program (title, about, name, episode, category) in any order “AANY” => (this is the OR boolean operation) at least one of the following words must be contained within the program (title, about, name, episode,
category)
“NNOT” => (this is the NOT boolean operation) exclude any programs that contain any of the following words in that search string

The AANY and AALL keywords should appear as the first word in the search string in order to set the search mode.
The NNOT keyword may appear anywhere and all words following the NNOT keyword are considered words to exclude.

SCOPE FILTERS:

TTITLE => Limits the search to only the Title field of the Programs NNAME => Limits the search to only the Name field (e.g. Actors, Director) of the Program CCHAN => Limits the search to only the specified channel range (example CCHAN 500 510, or CCHAN 500 for a single channel)

Some sample queries are:

AALL racing car NNOT nascar => finds all shows containing “car” and “racing”
(any order/position), but excludes the show if “nascar” appears
AALL hanks tom NNOT vinci => finds all tom hanks movies/shows but excludes
the movie if the word “vinci” appears (e.g. da vinci code)
AALL hanks tom NNAME => finds all tom hanks programs where he is an actor
AALL hdtv football => finds all high definition football
programs (note you can include category labels in the search and “HDTV” is same as “High-Def”)
AANY usc ucla NNOT football => finds all usc and ucla events/shows, but
excludes football events
oakland raiders NNOT miami => finds exact match for “oakland raiders” but
excludes show if “miami” appears (e.g. excludes games with Miami Dolphins) AANY lakers clippers CCHAN 700 730 => finds all games with the Lakers or Clippers on only channels 700 through 730 AANY lakers clippers CCHAN 710 => finds all games with the Lakers or Clippers on only channel 710

Looks like lots of changes to the media sharing - that's good.

Sorry for the delay in posting, I was fighting a blizzard to get home.

Ignore the origianl post date of 3/14. To save time I just copied last week and added the notes changes.

My Caller Id generally doesn't work anymore.
Some reason, it will work occasionally, but usually not.
edit: Strangely when I just tested it, it DID work, the real test will be if it continues to work, for some reason, my cell phone will activate it but others calling will not, we'll see more tomorrow.

Moonman,
Did you go back ?
I would have tried doing another download first, then if it didn't work, go back.

==========
It was early enough that I had enough time to try another D/L. The second one
seemed much better than the first, (no screensaver pop-up yet). Funny thing
while doing the first D/L....it went very quickly...much faster than usual..even
step 2 went quick...the second D/L took the usual amount of time to d/l..can't
explain why the first one loaded so quick...thanks for asking...still on the C/E
version....

screen saver

HR20-700....getting VERY BAD screensaver pop-up...never had this happen before...every 10 minutes comes on while watching LIVE programs. It is so bad
that I'm going back to the last national release ASAP. Box is unusable this way!!

I went back to the national.

I am having problems with audio dropouts every second on speed hd,
toonhd and others.

It only happens when I have dolby digital on
I am using the coaxial spdif connection now but it also happens with the toslink, optical connection....

if this is the wrong forum for this question please direct me to the proper one.

thanks,

Jeff
P.S. can anyone help with the sfss on the h20's
