Would it be possible af123 to have a button on the 100 list to switch between:
1.the list as it is now
2. the list weeded out of entries which have no occurances in the next week, probably because these are expired series recordings which people still have on their machines. QIXL is such an entry.

How many people have F1 in their list, ready for the next F1 race, perhaps several weeks or months away? Or things like Mock the Week, which miss weeks when there is some boring sport event on?

Yes and they can stay in the schedule on your box. They'll just drop out of the list when there's no events which would reflect the fact that it's not popular because no one can watch/record it.

The F1 entry would reappear on the popular list as soon as it was due within the next week. It's not relevant outside that time, because you can't use it to create a schedule entry anyway.

That's already the way that the top-100 list works. It also only considers entries from devices which have made contact in the last fortnight.
QI XL is still showing but the top-100 search doesn't find it properly as the two words in the title are both less than 3 characters.

The full text search engine that RS uses has a minimum word length of 3. Since QI is < 3 letters, RS uses a substring search for this. "QI XL" is longer than three characters but contains words under that length.. I'll see if I can improve things.
