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

My HR21 got this last night and now I have no audio at all going to my Yamaha receiver over digital coax connection. I changed to optical digital and no change. I turned off DD in the HR21 and again no change. Playing my DVD player through the same input with the same cable works fine so I can't believe it is the Yamaha. Interestingly though, I have audio to the TV over HDMI. My Yamaha detects the connection as either DD or PCM but I cannot get any sound at all. I've been on the phone with a CSR and now the supervisor for the last 1.5 hours with still no answer. He says no issues have been reported yet. Guess I'm the first?? Anybody else have this problem? The most I got out of Directv is that they could try sending me a new receiver but unless it is a hardware issue (broken ports) this doesn't seem like it will fix anything. Once it downloads the new software I'm thinking it will do the same thing.

Anybody with ideas?

Thanks,
Chris

I've hooked up a new HR21 last night. How can I force it to get a download of the latest software? Or do I just have to wait it out?

Considering how many models of recievers Yamaha and other companies make it would help to say what model Yamaha you have :D

Grab the update tonight if you haven't yet. I think the issue was fixed in this weekends CE.

And no, you weren't the first to report. It started back several CEs prior to 221.
