Using multiple operands in Internet Search

Postby jimerb » Sat Mar 11, 2017 6:11 pm

I'm trying to remove items from an internet search and I can't get it to work even after reading the operand instructions here:
http://www.newsbin.com/isearchhelp.php

For example if I search for:

ShowS01E02 -4K I still get the 4k results included.

If I try it in quotes, makes no difference.

Using 6.72 build 4776.

What am I doing wrong? Do i have to turn something on or something?

"-4K" is probably too small for the the search engine. I think there's a 3 character min size for search elements. I just tested and "480" doesn't filter but "480p" does.

I can ask Dex about the minumum size.
