I'm not the most technologically adept guy out there; I have been trying in vain to get my TIVO to record magic. There is a way to make a wish list of things magical in nature, but instead of getting Penn and Teller or Mindfreak, I get "The Magic Schoolbus" or "Knitting Magic." Any help.

I have had some success creating a whole bunch of wishlists using different magical words, such as magic, magical, magician, illusion, trick, tricks, penn, teller, Copperfield, blaine, criss, McBride, etc. Then, from time to time, search the program listings using these wishlists. You are right, in that 90 out of 100 listings for magic are for "The Magic Schoolbus" and other non-magic listings, but you will have some success with this strategy. I have found episodes of Three Stooges, I Love Lucy, Twilight Zone, and others with a magical theme, using this technique.

Hope this helps a little bit!

Best,
Jay
