Talking "Watch for Name"

Example: Assume I just watched the last episode of "Junkyard Wars", and didn't thing to get a SP on it, or I heard about the show after it was over. It would be nice if I could enter the show name (with fuzzy match option) so Tivo would catch it the next time the series aired. At least, in this case, I did get a SP logged for JY, but I can't hedge my bets by entering the name of the original show title: Scrapyard Challenge" If this one arrives in the US, I'll probably find out about it too late.

This feature whould also be useful for setting up recording for shows that are advertised months in advance.

Does anybody know if WishList will search through all channels to find a match? I had a SP to Junkyard Wars, but then I switched to cable and the channel name changed, so the SP is just sitting there useless.

It's not useless. There simply are no upcoming broadcasts of JW in your current programming schedule. As soon as one appears, TiVo will record it, whether it's on cable or any other source you are using.
