Hi, I had a bit of a look around, but I couldn't find what I was looking for. I know that you can narrow down search terms in the pattern section of keyword recordings, but is there a list somewhere of what you can use to do this?

Hope this makes sense,

Thanks, Paul.

The simplest way to find out how to construct more complicated searches is to go to TV Guide TV Guide, and click on Create Keyword Recording or Favourite just below the search box.

That gives you a fill-in-the-form interface to creating the search. In the bar at the top of the page, you can see the query being constructed as you go. It also incidentally gives you a list of all the fields that you can search on.

To the IceFolk: I really don't like the very thin fonts and some of the colour choices in the support pages. In particular, I find the the pale grey text on a white background in the examples panel in the Keyword Record section of https://support.icetv.com.au/hc/en-us/articles/227076207-Using-Series-Recording-Favourites-Keyword-Recording-and-Keyword-Favourites all but impossible to read, and the rest of the text merely hard to read (in Mac Firefox 75.0). I also find the thin fonts and colour of the links in the main contents page for support (https://support.icetv.com.au/hc/en-us) difficult to read.

Hi Paul,

prl has listed the best way to customise the keyword searches, and list all of the available options.

Thanks PRL, that did the trick. I was trying to edit an existing entry, much easier your way :-)
