[rs] Remote Scheduling v1

Something in Auto doesn't appear to be working. According to the published info, EPG search terms have an implied OR, so fleming 007 should match all strings containing either "fleming" or "007" (or both).

Here's an extract from my Auto list (the search term is in the synopsis column):

So, why does clicking "show matching events" say no results found?

Afterthought: does it require a four character string minimum?
Which published info is that? I thought the rules described on the advanced page did not apply to the rules on the standard page. On the standard page, from experience, I would expect fleming 007 to look for the 11 character string "fleming 007". If I don't want that then I use the advanced search.

You expect incorrectly. "fleming 007" gets you the 11 character string. fleming bond gets you all matches for "fleming" or "bond". fleming 007 doesn't work, and fails to pick up matches that contain "007" but not "fleming". +(fleming 007) works correctly.

Weirder and weirder.

Just 007 on it's own works! It matches all occurrences of "007" (including sub-strings).

Neither fleming 007 nor 007 fleming pick up anything containing "007".

The input box rejects a two-character string on its own.

Your post #816 was reffering to the standard auto search rules . I'm referring to the standard rule and your quote takes what I posted out of context.
By "expect" I was basing it on the standard rules I already have.

E.g. for a title standard search:
Try entering just "Drama on 3", without the quotes, into a new standard rule, and it returns Sunday's Drama on 3. It does not treat the search string as 3 alternatives. I.e. No other programmes with "Drama" are returned.
Then try "Drama on 3" in a standard rule and include the quotes. It returns nothing.
Also try "Drama 3" without the quotes. That will also not return anything.

Similar applies the the standard synopsis search which you are attempting to use.

I am just describing what happens.

That seems to indicate the search does not work as the wiki describes then. That would explain my problem too!

@af123:

I have confirmed @Luke's observations. Any unqualified string in the search field is treated as if it were enclosed in speech marks, ie as a single search term instead of a series of alternative search terms (with implied OR). This is not what the wiki description says, and it explains my problem with fleming 007 not finding any hits until your syntax forced the OR operation.

Is it supposed to work like that?

For info I am 'watching' this thread with email notifications on. Haven't received any yet even though there are some replies.
I have now received an email stating that I have had a reply in the quoted thread. Not sure if something has been 'reset' and RS emails are now being sent...
