Wishlist Exclude Talk Show Category

I would like to exclude Talk Shows from a Roamio Wishlist for Reese Witherspoon.

I've seen how to exclude a show when using a Keyword, but I how to can I exclude the Category Talk Shows ? Categories does not appear to have a Thumbs down (-) option.

Select all categories but Talk Shows? Just a thought because I've never done that before. An option to exclude would be nice.

No, I was wondering if you'd tried to add every other category to the wishlist with the exception of Talk Shows.

Nice try, thanks.

Just tried it, it will only accept one category per wishlist.

I suppose I could set up multiple wishlists,

1. Reese - Comedy
2. Reese - Drama
etc

but that is a ton of typing if I was going to use it for a bunch of actors.

Why not just have it limited to All Movies, or are you looking for when a specific actor will be on a TV show, just not Talk Shows?

I was thinking more along the lines of guest appearances in other series. There are a bunch of actresses that pretty much guarantee a good episode irregardless of the program. Joan Cusack is the best example, the Panabakers, a whole bunch of others.

I've done similar type WL, but it's always a PITA. Part of the challenge is the Boolean operators aren't allowed in the Category section.

You can put some unique keyword from each talk show in the keywords section, then NOT them.

Example:
(Reese Witherspoon)
-Letterman
-Fallon
-Talkjerk
etc

Like I said, a PITA, but it works.
