DVR recording keywords

Is there a way to set the dvr to record every program that has a particular keyword?
Thx

Not that I am aware of.  Based on the "quality" of the search and current small hard drives, I'm not sure I would want it to.

My dvr is supposed to have 500 gb, so space isn't a problem.. I had no problems doing it with my DirecTV dvr either. A bit disappointing.

Have you looked at the full list of shows a given keyword search finds?  Sometimes I have no clue what it is finding as there appears to be no correlation between what I asked for and what it finds.  Also, your search will return both HD and SD versions of the same show and record both under your scenario.

As to the drive size, keep in mind that the majority of users (especially us loyal long time users) only have a 160 GB drive - 20 hours of HD.  Congrats on getting the newer box with the bigger drive.
