Sure, go to Schedule Recordings->Search Words->(any) . Edit the
keyword or criteria until the result list matches the things you
want to record. From the popup click "Record". You will see a
normal recording options page with "<keyword> (<type> Search)"
as the title such as "Junkyard%Wars (Title Search)"

The documentation would be "click the 'Record' button" =).
If you had no luck perhaps you've been trying to set a record
rule for one of the titles on the resulting list. This would, of
course, set a rule for that title. When you like the results,
press "M"enu to bring up the popup where you can click the Record
button to set a rule for that search criteria.
