If your Sky box is connected to the Internet then On Demand results are mixed in with all the others.

On demand, yes.  Catch up, no.

 

I don't see the catch up results.

Catch up is listed as On Demand ie Search for Eastenders and it'll be labeled On Demand and if you manually search you will only find episodes in Catch Up.

 

On Demand is the collective term for Showcase, Catch Up, Box Sets, Sky Movies & Sky Store (the tabs in th OD section)

Re: Search catch up TV

Hi markius, 

 

Welcome to the community. 

 

If you press TV Guide on your remote and scroll across the menu at the top until you reach On Demand you should see a row of tabs appear in the middle of your screen, if you scroll across to Catch Up this will give you the BBC iPlayer, ITV Player etc. If you do not see these tabs appear when selecting on demand but only see Showcase it sounds like your Sky Box is not connected to the internet. Please ensure all steps are followed listed in this link to be connected to On Demand through an internet connection. 

 

Please let us know how you get on and if you need any further help please don't hesitate to message us. 

 

Thanks,

Re: Search catch up TV

Interesting.  The programme I was searching for is now shown in search.  How long does it take to build the index?

 

To be honest, I think this box is on its way out but I'll create a new post for this.
