    Hello everybody,

    I‘m trying to use the search function for e.g. “The Masked Singer”. I first search for “singer”, none correct results. Then I tried “masked”, same.
    But as I tried “the masked” the show was founded.
    Did I do something wrong or is this a new “feature”?

    You are right, text search uses "starts with". But you can work around by entering "%singer" (% is a wildcard in SQL)

    Using this wildcard is not easy without a keyboard on my media center. Fortunately I do not search a lot to record.
    But just for me to know, we it be changed someday?

    I agree here. Would it be not possible to set the wildcard % automatically in front of every search entry? It should still work, if the search string is directly at the beginning. @morpheus_xx could be even possible by xaml perhaps? But I guess to handle it in #C would be cleaner ...

    Yes, I thought about this topic as well. I'd prefer an explicit switch to select between "starts with" and "contains". The reason is that the current way "starts with" is faster than the "contains" query and leads to "better" results.
    One disadvantage when using "contains" is that once you type in a single "e" you will get probably a few thousand results. That's why an explicit selection is IMHO better.

    lol, when looking at the code I've seen TVE3.5 does a "equal" compare here. So you would have to type very exact ;)
