How do I search for shows to watch?
Search by show title, episode title, show description, or person name (actor, director, etc.). The
TiVo service searches upcoming TV shows and movies, streaming videos (from sources like
Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video, and more), and On Demand all at the same time. You can even
search for a particular channel by its network name or call sign (e.g., NBC or ESPN).
How can I search by using the on screen search?
From the Home screen, select Search
Use the letter grid to spell out the title, person, or word you’re looking for. Press the arrow
buttons to move around, then OK/SELECT on each letter you want. As you select letters, a
list of possible matches sorted by popularity appears on the right. For example, if you enter
the letters HOW, you might see matches for the TV show “How I Met Your Mother,” the On
Demand movie “How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days,” and the director Ron Howard. Results
are sorted by popularity, with better matches higher in the list.
Keep selecting letters until you see what you’re searching for. If you make a mistake, you
can press REWIND to erase one letter at a time. Insert a space by pressing FAST
Use the RIGHT arrow to highlight the show or person name.
Press OK/SELECT to view details, set up a recording or OnePass, or bookmark the show.
