Keyword recording query
« on: May 23, 2009, 11:22:28 PM »
Just found that I have a show set to record "Radiohead meeting people is easy".
Apparently it is part of a keyword recording.
Looking at my keywords that I set up, I believe it is picking up on 'Cary Grant' which I have set for titles, descriptions, actors director.
Looking at the shows (Radiohead) guide, it seems to have found 'Grant Lee' - director and the word 'scary' which would mean that it is using part of a word as a match.

Is this how keywords work?
Matching part words and not whole words?

This could explain some other seemingly random shows being set to record over the past few weeks.

If you want "cary grant" then you really need to put it in inverted commas just like that.   Else it will search for anything with cary and with grant anywhere in the show (depending on if you choose title+description or just title of course).   And it will match on parts of words, I think this is best as, for example, a keyword may end up being pluralised etc and thus easiest to put part of a keyword... and thus you want it to match even if it isn't a whole match.   But if you put "cary grant" in inverted commas, then I think this pretty much locks that combination of letters in to not much else bar what you need.

Thanks, just wanted to make sure that it does actually search parts of words.
