How to Make it Happen
Dim Front Panel Lights Press and Hold and together then release.
Turn Off Front Panel Lights Press and Hold and together then release (NOTE: These buttons are located on the front panel of your DVR, not on your remote). Repeat until lights turn off.
Advanced Search Techniques You can add these terms in Keyword searches to refine your search:

AALL: All the following words must be contained within the program (in any field--title, about, name, episode or category) in any order. For example: AALL BUSH GEORGE - Finds George Bush too since words can be in any order.

AANY: At least one of the following words must be contained within the program (in any field--title, about, name, episode, category). For example: AANY MALONE JOHN- Finds any program with the word John or Malone. You'd pick up any search result with, for example, Karl Malone.

NNOT: Exclude any programs that contain any of the following words regardless of previous match. For example: BALDWIN NNOT ALEC - Finds programs with the word Baldwin but not Alec so again a movie with Stephen Baldwin, Daniel Baldwin or William Baldwin may result.

Also, you can add certain keywords to limit the category or location of a search. HDTV, PPV or VOD are options. For example: BALDWIN HDTV NNOT ALEC NNOT PPV NNOT VOD would yield any Stephen, Daniel or William Baldwin shows that are in high-def, but are not pay-per-view and not video-on-demand.

To find all titles in a specific category, search for <SPC>, then input the category of choice.
