What search parameters to choose when using the JR Pass

Hello.
There's a lot of options in the "Input the search parameters" section at the HyperDia web page. I'm not sure if I'm choosing the right options in order to use my JR Pass because the page always shows me this message: "The search results below may contain some routes not suitable for Japan Rail Pass. Please make inquiries to railroad companies or travel agencies regarding actual fares, actual seat-fees and whether you are able to use Japan Rail Pass or not."

I'm choosing the following:
Bullet Train (SHINKANSEN)
Limited Express
Express
Liner
Walk
Sleeper Limited Express
Sleeper Express
Ordinary Train
Japan Railway(JR)
Private Railway

Am I choosing something I shouldn't in order to use the JR Pass?
Thank you very much for your help

Hi there,

The note "The search results below may contain some routes not suitable for Japan Rail Pass. Please make inquiries to railroad companies or travel agencies regarding actual fares, actual seat-fees and whether you are able to use Japan Rail Pass or not." is a standard disclaimer. Don't worry too much about it, that said, you should disable (Private Railway, Sleeper Limited Express, Sleeper Express) for the best results.

If you are doubtful about any route, post it here and I can confirm if it is covered by the JR Pass.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
