Searching!? - svinyard - 2011-11-30 18:30
Hi guys, love the app and have been using it a lot as a nice browser for the system. That being said, Must. Have. Search.
Android even has the nice little search button. I'd like to bring up the movie browser, hit the search button and as I type it filters movies based on the current text. Dying to have this put in place. It might be one of the last core functionality pieces that is missing now that I can send text to XBMC.
Is this still planned? I saw some posts regarding this from last year.

Really no one else wants an efficient way to search you XBMC library? There isn't a single solution for this even if you have a keyboard connected to your native box. Being able to use the predefined search button within Android phones would do so much.

i would like to see that feature, too. have you searched the bugtracker, maybe this feature has already been officially requested?

I second that. Search is essential.

Searching, but why stop there, a full featured playlist editor would be awesome, with search. There's a point when the music library is so large as to make creating a decent playlist arduous with a remote. This could be so bad ass with a phone/tablet

Agreed! Mine is mostly a movie library at the moment but soon it will be a music library as well and you are DEAD on. I'm surprised XBMC as a whole haven't improved this...heck the database is already there.
Never the less, to extend this through the remote would be awesome

When I first thought of tablet/remote this is what I assumed was there and was stunned not to see. Why bother with the same function as a regular remote, other that the "shiney" factor.
Not to sound too negative, it is neat what is there, I just was excited to finally have a great way to manage playlists, and was bummed when it wasn't there.

I too was shocked to find this feature isnt available. This would change everything and make the remote function completely essential. Can someone come back to us on whether this has been requested before? Has it been looked into?
I personally feel xbmc in general needs better search functions so these would all be solved with a search function.

The irony of not having searched for a search feature request is amusing.

That post is from 2010, and it says the feature is planned...
