How do you enter symbol on the slide remote

I thought the "Sym" button on the QWERTY keyboard would allow you to enter symbols on the remote, but when I use that in Tivo Search, it turns the top rows into numbers 1-0, and the rest of the alphabets don't do anything if I click "Sym" button 1st. I was trying to look for "$..! My Dad Says". I can still find it using "Dad Says", just thought it's odd that Tivo won't allow search by symbols.

I also tried it in Wishlist, editing wishlist names, and in that menu the "Sym" key does not do anything. So I guess I can't use any symbols in wishlist names.

In the sign-in screen for Youtube however it works to enter an email address as my account name.

SYM key on Slide Remote

Is the SYM (Symbol) key on Slide Remote supposed to work in the SEARCH field (I am trying to enter a Season Pass like Mike & Molly)? I have tried everything...holding SYM key down while pressing the key I want, replacing batteries, re-pairing remote.....nothing works. When I try it -it comes up with numbers and not symbols. Called TiVo and chatted with 2 TiVo tech's-all 3 did not know......any help here please???

Symbols don't work for me in the search menu. But symbols aren't needed for a text based title is it? I've never even needed to enter any symbols when searching for a title. This was the first time I ever tried a symbol in the search field.
