@george_ionita - The only help I see for you is on the ipad and probably other tablet apps.
The ipad has a list of your recordings that you can sort by date or alphabetically. Scrolling the list is fast & easy. Maybe faster than a search. Certainly easier than on TV. When you select a show you can trigger the play on a TV from the ipad.
You do know that if your DVR fails all those recordings are gone? The DVR is intended as short term storage for time shift playing. If you want to build a library, you should play the shows into another storage such as a computer & you should back up that storage.
