    I don;t think I'm missing anything and it is probably not possible. When searching by titles, I can narrow the search down to "Movies". Is there any way to further narrow that down to movies that are only on PPV or a pay Movie channel? If so, have not figured out how. Using the Record by Channel is too time consuming to look thru movies far into a month.

    I don't think there is a filter for what you want. You'll just have to do what you can and then only select the ones you want after the list has been created.

    Well, a very convoluted workaround would be to only select the channels you want to search in your Channels You Receive list. Then do the search.

    Assuming that pay-per-view movies were made recently, set up a Wishlist using Keyword 2005 & Movies. This will filter for movies made in 2005. Set one up for each year you are interested in.

    The only problem is that if you set it up to auto-record you will get a zillion hits and you have to screen your To-Do list regularly. What I do is not set for auto-record, but once a week or so I do a manual search using my wishlist.
