I open up Viveport and it gives recommendations. Okay...that's cool. But suppose I find a specific title on the web that I want to search for? Where and how do I do that? Crawling through the recommendations is cumbersome and I usually just give up and bail.
Thanks. Any help is appreciated.

As you can see below, there's a button marked "View All" under New & Updated. If you click on that, it will show you a search bar on the top right of the frame you can use to search titles by name and various criteria you can specify as well.Let me know if you have more questions.

But that is an incomplete list. For instance, I know there are more than 329 tltles in Viveport. When I do a search for "Stars" it brings up ILM, yet doesn't bring up Star Trek. Is there a complete access search for every title in Viveport?

Yes, that's a known issue. We're in the process of improving that (and other) features of Viveport. I don't have a timeline for you on when those changes roll out, but when the update is ready your software will apply it automatically as usual.

Hello @LxB, global search is still something that's being implemented. It takes a while for larger features like this to pass QA. In the most recent release of the client (r1076) there is a search feature within the store tab. You can use this to search for any title and bring up its store page where you can launch the title. It's admittedly not ideal but it is a proven workaround until the feature is fully implemented in coming releases.

Can you please send me or post an excel spreadsheet with all the 329 titles while the developers develop the "Search" feature.

A new search function is now part of the Viveport desktop client, and will also be rolling out to the site very soon - ie within a couple of weeks. This isn't the final iteration, we want to improve it further. One of the areas will be in subscription.
@gbrown2036, as you're seeing, searching within subscription isn't possible right now via a dedicated search function. However, there are workarounds. When you go to the subscription page, if you scroll down you'll see that 'see all Subscription titles' button. Click that to see everything, and yes, use Ctrl + F or similar to search for a title.
The 'Available in Subscription' button does take you to the Subscription page, but using the method above you should able to add a title to an existing subscription. It's not an elegant solution and it's being looked at, but that's what we've got right now. You should never, however, be forced to buy a title that is in subscription already (unless you want to own it permanently).

I don't see the "see all subscription titles" button anywhere on either the web or in the client. What is it near or how far down the page is it?
