Help with Search by Genre

Hello. I'm hoping someone can help me with this. I'd like to use the search box to display all my tracks that are NOT of the genre Podcast, but I can't figure out how to do it. I tried
NOT genre:Podcast
-genre:Podcast
genre:-Podcast
...none of those worked and I don't know what else to try. I did read the wiki page on advanced searching.

I know I could use the Track Browser window and select all the genres except the one I don't want to see, but that's a little cumbersome and it takes a long time for the results to appear. Plus, I don't think I get tracks that have a blank genre if I do that, so it's not really giving me what I want. And yes, I know I could construct a big playlist that excludes the one genre, but that's cumbersome, too. I'd rather use the Search box if possible.

Also, I'm on MM 3.2.5. Answers applicable only to MM 4 won't help me. Thanks!

That is all for MediaMonkey 4 which more advanced search capabilities in the quick search: http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.p ... Search/4.0

I suggest you create an Auto-Playlist (Gold Feature) and set it to Genre is not Podcast in the Advanced tab.

I didn't realize the wiki Search page was for MM4 only. Thanks for that info.

I do have Gold Lifetime, so I can use your suggestion which works pretty well for what I need. I'd forgotten about all the things Auto-Playlists can do. Thanks very much for the help.
