It's up to the channel developer (in this case Hulu) to permit the Roku search to work in their channel. You'd have to ask Hulu support, but don't be surprised if they say it's a Roku problem. It's not, but the people answering the support phones/emails likely have no idea how it works.

Exactly, the customer support people working for these companies are completely uninformed and deeply stupid. They don't even know how their own services work and a lot of times you have to explain in baby steps exactly what the problem is and they still have to go off to "consult their supervisor" for answers. Then they just say there is nothing they can do but they'll pass on your feedback or request to the development team but can't guarantee a fix. I've had many conversations with Netflix, Hulu and Amazon and virtually all of them ended that way. So good luck getting the search feature to work anytime soon!
