Using Content Search in Boxee Box
How do I use the Boxee Search option?
Boxee content search makes it easy to find specific TV shows, movies, music, and apps. You can search for a specific title, keywords, or a file name, you can filter the results by the filter options in the search dialogue.
To access the search bar, press the Menu button on the remote control until you see a Menu, then just start typing for what you are searching for. To search for a specific title, enter text in the search field and press Enter or OK. Boxee will search your local sources and also online and display a list of all the files matching the search text. Move the highlight to the item you want and press OK to play the file. If the item you want doesn't appear on the list, try using one of the search filters or search again using a variation of the title or keywords.
Also, you can filter and sort the content (Movies/ Shows) from the Menus, When inside Shows or Movies, from the Menu Bar click down and navigate through the categories and the channels the, for example Action, Comedy etc... When inside the Shows or Movies you can sort the files there by using the sort icons on the upper right side. You have there the channel filter, you can un-check sources that you don't want them to be displayed in the library - this applies only to online sources, for more information on the channel filter review this.
The available sort option are:
You can also change the display of the Media Library from a List view to Thumbnails wall. If you want to change the default use of Movies/ Shows, to display Local Files or Content from the Internet you can change it in Settings -> General -> Menu.
TIP:You can start typing in the Home Screen Screen and it will automatically pop the search menu
