Special Characters Program Search

Hi all.

Is there any way to put special characters in the search box. Such as / ! @?

I ask as I wanted to search for AC/DC but doesn't seem possible!

Thanks

Re: Special Characters Program Search

For AC/DC put in a space between AC and DC.

Currently the only thing coming back on a search is a Brooklyn Nine-Nine episode.

The space is needed. I have a WishList for AC/DC and it picks up stuff when there's stuff shown using AC DC

Re: Special Characters Program Search

There is a way round this if you have the TV Anywhere app on a phone or tablet.

Press the search button on your actual remote.

Then select the "Remote" in the TV Anywhere app by pressing the three bars menu top left.

Select the keyboard and the you can enter your search including special characters which will appear on your TV.
