List of all the trains we can take with JR pass

Hello,
I am travelling to Japan for the next 3 weeks, I booked a 21-day-JR pass and I am currently most of my trips through Hyperdia. I take care to unselect NOZOMI, Airplanes and Private Railways, however most of the time, the results mention : "The search results below may contain some routes not suitable for Japan Rail Pass. "
Sometimes, it is obvious that the trains are operated by JR as it is in the name of the train, but sometimes I am not so sure and I don't want to pay any extra-fee.
Therefore, my question is simple : is there a complete list of all the train names that I can take with a JR Pass ?

Many thanks for your help !

Hi there,

The message: "The search results below may contain some routes not suitable for Japan Rail Pass. " is just a general warning in Hyperdia for every search you may do.

We have a map with all lines covered:

Hope this helps,
