    Nope there search is one of the worst i have ever come across.

    It finds things when it feels like it :(

    The only way i can think of is going through the menu system e.g

    Browse Catalogue and then pick your Letter etc

    Hope that helps :)

    It's gotta be better than what I'm doing at the moment.
    1) typing a title into the search box not getting what I want so then going to Play, DVDPacific or Movietyme and ordering from them.

    or

    2) following a link that someone else posts and if it's something I want ordering it there and then so I don't lose it.

    Agreed.
    Search for "Sin City" and you get sex and the city, Sim City video games but not the exact 7 letters I searched for.
    Bizarre.

    I have to agree with you all. I wrote to them last year about the ridiculous results you get from simple searches. Their response was that they were working on improving the search facility. It's obviously not happened.

    I find for the likes of "Sin City" do a search word by word, "Sin" will find sin city. Though when I wanted to find "R3 War of the Worlds" had to search for "War of the World" !!
