That one trips most (all?) users. I don't have anything here with that controller to look at right now and give you the precise key sequence but here's how it works:

Rather than entering the entire catalog number, you enter the first two or three numbers and then use the up and down buttons to scroll through the available entries with those initial digits.

True; none of the popular systems include the entire 250,000 or so SAO entries.
