Searching the Guide
« on: May 07, 2009, 09:54:18 PM »
Howdy all,

is it just me or is searching broken in Windows 7 Media Centre? For instance, I was searching this evening for the show "Catalyst" and got nothing in return. It does, however, show up in the normal Guide display.  I also tried "Mad Men" and some others, no luck.

Thanks,

Steve.

Hi Steve,

See if this helps:

Tip: Searching in Media Center
After loading new guide data, it may take some time before Windows indexes everything. Until that happens, searching in Media Center by Title or Keyword may not find what you want. You can either wait for Windows to re-index everything on its own schedule, or you can force it to re-index everything immediately:

  • In Windows 7, go to Start / Control Panel / All Control Panel Items / Indexing Options.
  • You should see "Windows Media Center" in the list of "Included Locations".
  • Click Advanced, then click Rebuild, then click OK.  This will rebuild the index and include all the latest guide data.
  • When it says "Indexing complete" at the top, click Close, and then searching in Media Center should include all the latest data.
