Rather than use the mythweb interface to search for a term as common as 
the letters "ER" together I would use the frontend and the schedule 
recordings screen to scroll thru the alphabetical list of programs to 
get to the one you want. That should show you all upcoming episodes and 
allow you to select one. Michael Dean pointed out the correct syntax for 
a string search in mythweb if you really need/want to use that interface.
