Is there any ability in the Premiere to map say 4 to 404 so my wife doesn't keep ending up watching the SD channel and complaining about the quality?
Simply put, nope. As much as we would love that, TiVo just doesn't support that.
DirecTV benefits from designing the hardware/software and providing the video services in that they can do cool stuff like that. Unfortunately, we will probably never see that from a Cable Provider + TiVo unless they work together specifically.
