No problem. On the Search popup there is a button called "Record"
which brings up a recording options page that will create a rule
for the search term. There don't have to be any current matches
in order to use the "Record" button. Highlight your search on the
popup list then press Tab or "M"enu to shift focus to the buttons
and click Record. You could choose to record once for, say, a movie
title or anytime for all future programs that have a match.
