Ok. There is a show coming on dish October 3. Its Sept 5 today, so the guide doesnt go that far. I use to be able on my hopper 3 to set a timer that would constantly look for the show till it comes on - 1 month or 5 years - it didnt matter. No, i cant find that feature. Its a movie so not looking for reoccurring show. Any help is welcome

When you put the title name in the search box did that title come up at all? If not you can't do that seek. Sometimes you have to get closer to the air date for the title to fill. What is the movie title you are trying to save?

Do a search for that movie title. If it comes up you will get an opportunity to set a recording by pressing Record When Available. This sets up a seek timer.
Thanks bobby, but like i said, its beyond the guide so it doesnt show up in search. When i use to do it, when it came up with nothing is when i use to get the seek and record option. Just had to be absolute about the title. I had like 5 from several years ago. The 4th just recorded last month and there is still one looking.

This was one of the great features dish had. I hope they havent removed it and where ever they hide it, they put it back in the search feature..

Why don't you just go out and buy post it notes and put it on your TV so you don't forget it and the program comes up within a week of showing.
