Until they are done, anything that uses search will be affected such as normal search, post history, etc. It works from the oldest post first and is building forward in time. We could have waited for it all to be done, but hey, who uses search anyway? NOTE...The site will be slower until this is all done! Thanks for your understanding.

    It was so slow, that I could have gotten up out of my chair, walked across the room, and booted my windows PC :down:

    That was when it worked, then I tried to search for "gracie allen" it just said searching for a long time, then switched back to live tv.

    In general, you should stop searching before I finish typing (put in a SEARCH key, like on the web) - your series 3 does not have the cpu power to do it otherwise - I cant use youtube on the tivo for the same reason - TOO TOO slow.

    The new search feature is unuseable for me as well. I have a series 3, fast internet, but it hangs for a minute or two to even get into the search; then it takes 60 - 90 seconds PER button push, and by that time it jumbles together 6-7 differrent button pushes and does crazy things. I can't wait that long just to even begin using it...I hope they fix it.

    It's been working pretty well for me lately. But tonight I gave up waiting for it to go into the Beta Search after several minutes. New load from the TiVo Central message? I also got a "Service temporarily unavailable" message trying to go into "On Demand".

    Great concept, but too slow. I don't have the patience to wait.
