    I'm trying to record all of my teams football/basketball games in HD using a wishlist. I've got a wishlist that should work great, but unfortunately there is a national SD feed, a regional SD feed and a regional HD feed that are often all carrying the same game. I want the TiVo to default to the HD feed, but there are times when the national SD feed will be the one I have to record instead so I don't want to just remove the SD feeds from my channel list (this is my current work around). I've got the wishlist setup to record HD->Sports->SportsEvent, but the problem is the HD guide data never reports the games on the regional HD feed as HD. As a result the wishlist shows nothing matches. But if I take off the HD requirement, and then repeat the wishlist search, I see all the games (SD and HD channels).

    I've tried to report the issue using TiVo.com/lineup. Is there anything else I can do to make TiVo aware of the issue? Anything else I can do beside removing the SD channels from my lineup?

    Two things I can think of:

    Use TiVo's feature request form and suggest they need to change wishlist searches so that it chooses to record from the highest channel number first, instead of from the lowest channel first like it does now.


    Suggest to your cable company that they need to put the HD channels lower than the SD channels in the channel line-up.

    Neither of which I think will do any good, although your chances are ever so slightly better contacting TiVo. :p

    *(You wouldn't want both to happen because that would just reverse your situation.)
