Searching program information

Just got a replacement receiver (Hopper 3) . Still getting used to searching and setting timers but how do you search not just the name of the program but also the program information?

Also, what does the "jump" button do? Can't get my swap button to go between more than two channels, on my old receiver I had access to 4 of the 5. (Have a super joey in bedroom)

With the Hopper 3 you have many ways to search! With the Smart Search, you can find content by the title of a movie, TV show or by actor name. Results will include live, recorded, On Demand, and Netflix results. When you reference the Jump Button, what are you talking about? Is it on the actual remote or through the receiver?

The jump button is on the receiver itself.

With the old receiver I could hit swap and watch/pause/rewind 4 of my 5 tuners. (hopper + super joey), now it only works with 2 tuners. Any ideas?

The description of a basketball game included "MS St". I searched for that and it came up with nothing, I was going to set it to seek and record like on the old receiver so any game we played would automatically record. Don't know how to do that now. That's why the original question.

Thanks for the help/

what exactly are you calling smart search. Using old remote if that matters...

The jump button on old UI used to bring up TV activity, new UI it has no function. For the basketball game you were searching for what is the actual Team name?

also unless things are recording I cant hit my red button to use free tuners. on old receiver I could select an available tuner and assign a channel to that, now it goes back to programming and leaves tuner unused. cant swap between more than 2 channels unless recordimgs are using some or all tuners.
