    showings of a program. I want to record the SD version at a later time (SHO west coast feed). Does anyone know how to do this?

    SPs require a specific channel. Set one up for the analog channel and one for the digital channel. They can be for the same time.

    I guess you could also setup a Wishlist that would grab both recordings. You'd probably need to set it to record all episodes, including duplicates.

    The 28 day rule prevents the lower priority SP from recording. Shows on cable have too many showings to use record all with duplicates. I may be missing something but it looks like when I force a recording of the SD the previously recorded HD version gets overwritten.

    What if you set the HD one to first run only, and a lower priority SD one to new and repeats?

    28 rule still applies. It will schedule the recording if I use all with duplicates but tivo doesn't seem to want to keep both recordings.

    What if you set the HD up as a season pass... and then a manual recording for the SD episode?

    I haven't done manual recordings in a while, so I don't know if you can have it occur for the same day/time each week.

    A manual recording may be the only work around but it looks like tivo deosn't want to keep both versions on the unit.

    You could also get a second TiVo and setup up an HD SP on one and an SD SP on the other.
