    Is it possible to set a season record with a keyword that is treated as a partial match?


    Series "The Bill" sometimes has the episode in the title (yes, crap, but it happens).

    "The Bill"

    Next Monday is
    "The Bill: Too Hot to Handle"

    Is there a wildcard so I can set the title to be "The Bill{anything}"

    In SQL it would be "The Bill%", but this doesn't do anything so I guess it's looking for an exact match only.

    So far I've been mightily impressed with MP, the work put in by the development team is outstanding!

    If it can't do this, it's probably a show-stopper for us due to the inconsistencies of the UK EPG, but there is always the option of post-processing the EPG!

    If the standard install can't do it - then maybe For the Record can? For The Record

    This is dead-easy in For The Record.

    A since a picture is worth a thousand words below is a screenshot from the Management Console. Obviously the created schedule will be visible in MediaPortal's TV guide as well, so I've added two screenshots of that too :)
