    Forum Search

    Is there somewhere I can read up on forum search capabilities and how to use them? I get w-a-a-y-y too many results and can't seem to narrow it down.

    Thanks.

    My preference is to use a Google search ... You can specify in Google that you only want to search the NextPVR forum site ... something like ... site:forums.nextpvr.com emby ...

    What he said. Plus you can search phrases "in quotes", words that must be include in "quotes" and what should be excluded - , along with a myriad of other neat options.

Frustrated that NextPVR is not working? Take a moment and consider this and this and this and this and this and this. Credit where credit's due; for one guy (with a wife and two kids), most problems are solved outrageously quickly. Patience.

    Many thanks, people. I never knew one could do that!

    EDIT: Can I use that technique from within the forum? How?
