Well, I've attempted to RTFM (both the official documentation and the wiki) and I've turned up nothing. At least let me know if this is a bug, an unimplemented feature that should be implemented (I may be able to write/submit a patch if that's the case), or if this is implemented this way for some reason.
> My question involves scheduling recordings by category search list. The problem seems to be that Schedules Direct allows for programs to be in more than one category, but the category search only displays a show if the first of its many listed categories matches the category chosen. So, if I search for "Documentary" I might turn up a show called "Passport to Adventure," which has its categories listed as "Documentary, Travel, Adventure." But if I search in either the "Travel" or "Adventure" categories, this show doesn't appear.

I think you're seeing the genres, which are appended to the end of the
category for the program details dialog. I.e. for "Documentary, Travel,
Adventure" category is "Documentary" and genres are "Travel, Adventure".
Perhaps you want a genre search list or a category/genre search list.
