Well, it comes to my mind that you should just use normal 'main' channel
If you usually watch it in HD, then mark that with main channel number. Then
put another version of the channel (SD) to same number * 100 (or 1000).
15 ABC HD
1500 ABC SD
or for easy remote use, for alternative channel triple the last digit.
15 ABC HD
1555 ABC SD
16 NBC HD
1666 NBC SD
Why should you select between SD/HD? Or is there a different programme on?
I'd delete the SD ones if they show the same show :)
Also I don't understand standard channel numbers. In Finland Swedish-speaking
Yle FST thinks they are at position 5. No way, for me they are at 100 and
I watch channels, not channel numbers. If show is coming from "Sub", I know it
is 5 in my setup. So for me channel numbers are to my own preference, not
somebody is saying so. Easies up the channel browsing as it happens in my
priority preference (channel numbering), not some political aspect.
EPGSearch then records my shows from channels by keywords without channel
