Browse by Title not working very well

For several months now I've noticed that the illico Browse By Title feature doesn't seem to include all the shows starting with the selected letter that are available that day. In fact, whenever I've tried to use it, there seems to be only a small subset of what there should be.

I tried cold rebooting a couple of times now, but this didn't help. Has anyone else noticed this problem?

Same thing in Toronto on Rogers. The search is pretty useless - sometimes it can find something, sometimes not. I usually go to the internet...

It seems to get corrupted the more you try to use it. It was not always the case.

I noticed that same problem at least two months ago, so its nothing new.

There is a much better search on one of the 900+ channel numbers. Its slower as you have to wait for the app to load, but it allows you to enter in partial text (not just search by the first letter). And it will show you all channels/time your program plays on for at least the next week.

Cool, I didn't know about that. I'll look for it. Thanks.
